    Arch .6 boot errors :edit:


    i am running arch .6 on my machine currently, when i go to boot the kernal with this command:

    Code:
    kernal /boot/vmlinux26 root=/dev/discs/disc0/part2 ro devfsmount=/?
    i get the errors:

    Code:
    starting devfsDaemon...[FAILED]
             starting swap...[FAILED]
             starting network...[FAILED]
    to fix this i edit the command in GRUB to this:

    Code:
    kernal /boot/vmlinux26 root=/dev/discs/disc0/part2 ro
    and every thing starts!?

    is there anyway to keep this setting or command? or do i need to fix something?

    thanks

    You can just edit that line in your /boot/grub/grub.conf. Remember to mount your /boot if it is on a different partition before trying to edit this file.
