Hi all,

I've just finished building LFS-3.0 & get this error on startup (I've
included a few lines either side so you can see where it occurs):

Remounting root file system in read-write mode...

Mounting other file systems...reiserfs: checking transaction log (device

Loading keymap...
[ OK ]
INIT: Entering runlevel: 3

Here's the partitions from my fstab (apart from swap & proc):

/dev/hda6                       /               reiserfs        defaults

/dev/hda9                       /home           reiserfs        defaults

directory when installing tar to install the bzip2 patch & also the

I've also tried running 'hwclock --hctosys --localtime', which appears
to be the last command executed in /etc/init.d/setclock, and it didn't
give an error of any kind.

The LFS system works fine after this, and I haven't seen any ill effects
as a result of char-major-10-135 not being loaded (I assume it's a
character map of some sort).

Any ideas where this is happening?
