Re: 2.6.15 -- unable to open an initial console



Hello,

In fact, I use lilo.
http://www.cfa.harvard.edu/~gbakos/noconsole-2.6.15/
See lilo.conf
There is also some other stuff here, the kernel .config and the
make(install) log files.

> Udev without initrd
> Install Fedore Core as usual and reboot. Execute the following commands

> mount --move /dev /tmp/dev
> sbin/MAKEDEV null console zero

OK, but then this continues as:
"You will get some SELinux errors, and syslogd will not work as expected"

They scared me away from considering this option :)

Right now I am trying to check my initrd image -- what is exactly
inside; is there a /dev/console there ...
