I noted (just caught it this time as it scrolled off the screen)
mounted devfs on /dev
then it starts net 4.0 etc etc
mounts root filesystem in read only......
trys to mount swap and says
cannot stat/dev/hda2 no such file or directory
Is there any "special" tricks I need to do to sort this out ?
Unsubscribe: send email to listar at linuxfromscratch.org
and put 'unsubscribe lfs-support' in the subject header of the message
