Cannot execute '/etc/rc.S'


System: Slackware x.x Linux kernel : 2.73

VFS: Mounted root (ext2 filesystem) readonly
INIT: version 2.73 booting
INIT: cannot execute "/etc/rc.d/rc.S"
INIT: Enterning runlevel: 1
INIT: cannot execute "/etc/rc.d/rc.K"

We can't boot our server... because of error mention above.
/etc/rc.d/rc.S and /etc/rc.d/rc.K is existing...

check the filesystem with a rescue cd.
fsck filesystem

then mount it and see if the /etc directory is there,
and /etc/rc.d/stuff

/etc/rc.d/stuff like rc.S rc.M rc.K are all existing.

I changed the default run-level to 1. During boot init, the same error occurs.. shown belows is the exact error

(none) login:

when I try loging-in as root, the authentication process is successfull.. but /dev/tty has a problem ... the message is:

cannot change tty for root
Bad file number for '/dev/tty1'
