Hi Guys,

I'm new to linux and i'm using Redhat-5 distribution.

when i install redhat from the CDs it works properly for a while,
but thereafter, when i restart or reboot the system it promtes following
error messages and wont bootup.

error message...

"modprobe warning /etc/modprobe.conf line 0 : ignoring bad line
check filesystem
unexpected inconsistency : run fsck manually
kernel panic - not syncing : attempted to kill init"

Do you mean Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5? Plain old Red Hat 5 is old as the hills...

Anyhow, it sounds like a corrupt filesystem. Have you tried booting off a rescue disk and running fsck on the root partition as suggested in the error message? If the filesystem is going bad you should also run badblocks on the drive to see if there are any bad sectors. If the hard drive has S.M.A.R.T. capabilities, you should probably also run smartctl and run some of the self tests.

hi btmiller,

yes i'm working on RHEL-5, of course i tried with rescue mode and i ran fsck, but stil the same...

mean while miller, i didnt found any bad sectors as well.

still i'm unable to figure-out the exact probelm which cause this inconsistency.....

In the e-mail I received there was apparently a star <*> in the beginning of the 1st line.
Is this a glitch or is it real?
If the said star <*> exists, remove it for it could cause effect similar to Yours
--edit--
Nope there isn't a star, it's a glitch for bold-code.
Double check if said module 8139too exist
