Cant login


Hi,

I am unable to login to my comp.....I am running on Slackware linux....

I get the following error...and it repeats every 5 mins....
Quote:
INIT : Id "c1" respawning too fast : disabled for 5 mins
i was able to login normally from the login prompt earlier.....then i tried to autologin.....for that i did the following....

1. created a C file autologin.c
Code:
int main()
{
  execlp("login","login","-f","userid",0);
}
2. compiled the C program and copied the executable 'autologin' to /usr/local/sbin

3. modified inittab

original line
Quote:
c1:2345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty1 linux
modified line
Quote:
c1:2345:respawn:/sbin/agetty -n -l /usr/local/sbin/autologin 38400 tty1 linux
I need to start my comp and change inittab...how do i do this?

pls advice...

You could try booting in single user mode, which is (I believe) runlevel 1, by appending "1" to the kernel command line in grub/lilo.
