INIT: Id "h1" respawning too fast error


I had a question for the linux community. I'm new to linux and I'm loving it so far. However, I've been having a small problem recently, and I'm not sure how to fix it. When I log into the shell, I get the error

INIT: Id "h1" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes

it goes over and over, I can hit ctrl + c and it goes back to the shell prompt, but it's more an annoyance. In doing research, I found that it might have to do with my /etc/inittab file. Which is here:

id:5:initdefault:

# System initialization.
si::sysinit:/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit

l0:0:wait:/etc/rc.d/rc 0
l1:1:wait:/etc/rc.d/rc 1
l2:2:wait:/etc/rc.d/rc 2
l3:3:wait:/etc/rc.d/rc 3
l4:4:wait:/etc/rc.d/rc 4
l5:5:wait:/etc/rc.d/rc 5
l6:6:wait:/etc/rc.d/rc 6

# Trap CTRL-ALT-DELETE
ca::ctrlaltdel:/sbin/shutdown -t3 -r now
# When our UPS tells us power has failed, assume we have a few minutes
# of power left. Schedule a shutdown for 2 minutes from now.
# This does, of course, assume you have powerd installed and your
# UPS connected and working correctly.
pf:owerfail:/sbin/shutdown -f -h +2 "Power Failure; System Shutting Down"

# If power was restored before the shutdown kicked in, cancel it.
pr:12345owerokwait:/sbin/shutdown -c "Power Restored; Shutdown Cancelled"

# Run gettys in standard runlevels
1:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty1
2:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty2
3:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty3
4:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty4
5:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty5
6:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty6

# Run xdm in runlevel 5
x:5:respawn:/etc/X11/prefdm -nodaemon
h1:35:respawn:/etc/init.d/init.cssd run >/dev/null 2>&1 </dev/null

The last line is particularly interesting to me because there's the "h1" that I keep getting, but I'm not sure why this might be happening.

INIT: Id "h1" respawning too fast

I am sure that the problem has been resolved already, but in case anyone else runs into this error, hopefully they will find this.

I installed Oracle 10g on RH 3.0. I later removed it. The Oracle install put an entry in the /etc/inittab file. If you open it, you will see the line corresponding to the "h1" on the left hand side. Remove this entry or comment it out.

You may also want to remove the script from your init.d and rc.x directories. Just run "find /etc -name *.cssd", and you will find them.
