Couldnt get a file descriptor referring to the console
I have been getting this message at the boot up time and this error continues scrolling forever until/unless I control C out of it!?
Then the OS continues to boot up normally and gives no problems!(Feisty 7.04 with all the updates).
OK This is a XEN (Virtual) machine but the last time I set it I used the same OS file (zipped into one file) and never had any problems.
This time around I am getting this message and also as I looked at the above post and when I tried the other commands (showkey etc.) they also returned this message "Couldnt get a file descriptor referring to the console".
I do have tty, tty0 etc in /dev and there is also a console there so I dont know what this error is about?
(I have a feeling there are some files in /lib or /lib/modules/ which are missing or messed up)? Not sure though.
Thanks for any help!
