Starting system log daemon problem


sorry to use this as a trouble-shooting forum but.... I finished the LFS book and now i am trying to restart into my new LFS distro. Everything seems to look okay while the kernel is loading until it gets to "Starting system log daemon". It just sits there until i am forced to restart. I double checked my sysklogd.conf and everything looks okay.. is there anything im missing?

check if there is a file /var/run/syslogd.pid and/or /var/run/klogd.pid

if syslogd doesn't eventually time out when it's stuck like that, you'll have to boot like this

LILO: lfskernel init=/bin/bash rw

this will start a shell rather than going through the usual bootscripts and it will mount the root filesystem read-write.

PS: the bootscripts that are used in the 3.2-rc1 version of the LFS-Book fix this problem by cleaning up stale files in certain dirs like /var/run /var/lock and so on. You may want to consult www.linuxfromscratch.org/view/3.2-rc1/
