Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

After trying building a new kernel I wasn't able to boot my new box. Below is an excerpt from the boot sequence. Just tell me what other information is needed to solve this problem.
Here's the error I get after the message
"Running LinuxConf hooks"
INIT: Id "1" respawning too fast: disable for 5 minutes.
INIT: Id "2" respawning too fast: disable for 5 minutes.
INIT: Id "3" respawning too fast: disable for 5 minutes.
INIT: Id "4" respawning too fast: disable for 5 minutes.
INIT: Id "5" respawning too fast: disable for 5 minutes.
INIT: no more processes left in this runlevel
OK I got the /dev/tty problem fixed but now when I boot it seems like the root / and /boot are being mounted in read-only mode. I don't remember changing anything. Weird thing is, this didn't happen with the other problematic kernel.
Originally posted by tarballedtux No, it is a problem. It stays read only and eventually fails to boot. A whole bunch of errors get spit out about "Can't do <such and such> because file-system is read-only"
I must say I'm lost. Which kernel are you talking about? Do you have this problem only with new kernel or also with the old one(this one from your distro)?
No, all configuration files are the same. When one kernel is booting OK and there are problems only with the other one, it's definitelly a matter of the kernel. I don't remember an option giving such an effect. Maybe check the filesystem part (what you have as modules, what is compiled into your kernel etc).

Forget this guess and check operation. I got a generic working config and just modified it (Take out the the crap). I compiled and ran it booted fine I'm happy your happy. Now at least i have a good .config file so I can make oldconfig in the future
