Saw this while drinking my first cup of coffee this morning and thought, let me try it. Did a yum *upgrade* instead of update and now my clients won't boot. Shouldn't be so eager before I wake up properly.

The client fails at line 74 of /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/rc.sysinit with "modprobe - command not found" then fails to connect to the swap server, and finally with the message "stat of /dev/tty1 failed: no such file or directory" and "stat of /dev/tty2 failed: no such etc"

If I turn off NBD swap it still fails with the "stat of /dev/tty1 failed" message.

Any pointers on how to fix this?
