    Linux NET4.0 for Linux 2.4


    I have a Dell server with Linux NET4.0 for Linux 2.4 installed. I've been asked to help since the server won't boot. The network administrator ran a script and now I get the following errors:
    starting pdistd <--what is pdistd?
    initializing network
    waiting for /resume ok
    invoking /resume
    enabling swapping (/dev/sda\2) <--should this have the added \ character?
    Adding swap: 987988k swap-space (priority -1)
    mounting real root (/dev/sda3)
    Floating point exception
    cmp: /ROOT/etc/running-config: No such file or directory
    something went wrong, not passing control

    attempt to access beyond end of device
    01:00 : rw=0, want=265302281, limit 16384
    /sbin/pdistd: 1: Syntax error: "(" unexpected

    Much thanks to anyone who can help!

    starting pdistd <--what is pdistd?
    this is a script that your network admin probely wrote, just a guess.

    enabling swapping (/dev/sda\2) <--should this have the added \ character?
    the \ character is not used, the dev call should be /dev/sda2

    cmp: /ROOT/etc/running-config: No such file or directory
    most of the system config files are located here /etc/ but you need to locate the running-config file path and change the script to point to the correct path.

    /sbin/pdistd: 1: Syntax error: "(" unexpected
    The syntax error is saying that ( is not to be there.

    If you fix the error the script should run.
