Exclamation booting gentoo with / on reiser4 - Why won't any /etc/init.d scripts start?


I just installed a new kernel on my laptop, and decided to switch my / and /home partitions to reiser4. switching /home was OK, but when I switched /, the kernel booted and udev started, but all of the rc scripts failed with the message:
Code:
 * ERROR: <script> cannot run until sysinit completes
 * <script> will be started in the boot runlevel
and ONLY /, proc, sysfs, devpts, and udev get mounted.

Code:

Fixed; I added ro to the boot options and removed the noatime option from /etc/fstab
