This is why I mentioned "current SVN" in that email. The 0.6 series
contains a large amount of distro-dependent code, forcing me to write an
LFS-specific implementation in order to make it work. I don't know which
distro your one thinks it's running, but most of the errors look like
that kind of thing. References to distro-specific bootscripts, for

"Current SVN" at the time (recently released as 0.7) cleaned that up a
lot, to the point where I've been running it for the last year or so
without any custom coding at all. It needs to be built with
but it works just fine on LFS.

So, I'd suggest trying that. If you still have problems, I suggest
taking them to the NM mailing list rather than here - from my
experience, they're unlikely to be LFS-specific...
