    booting problem


    Dear Linux Users


    I got into trouble while booting the RHEL5 linux machine.

    It shows error as

    Volumegroup00 is active
    mkrootdev: unexpected arguments
    cmd: 0x21c6232 end: 0x21c6231
    cmd: echo mounting root file system
    mount /sysroot
    echo setting up other file system
    setuproot
    echo switching to new root and running in it
    switch root
    mount: missing mount point
    setuproot: moving /dev failed: No such file or direcotry
    setuproot: error mounting /proc: No such file or direcotry
    setuproot: error mounting /sys: No such file or direcotry
    switchroot: mount failed: No such file or direcotry
    Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!

    Please advise me.

    Many Thanks

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    So, what did you do just before this started to occur?
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
