Freeing unused kernel memory: 128k freed
INIT: version 2.85 booting
INIT: /etc/inittab[5]: sysvinit: unknown action field
INIT: Entering runlevel: 3
Starting system log daemon... [FAILED]
Starting kernel log daemon... [OK]

(none) login: root
unable to change tty /dev/tty1: Read-only filesystem
No mail.
