Will try again i 5 minutes.

Re: Boot Problem

I beleive you have something in your /sbin/init.d directory that either should not be there or is not working correctly.

Re: Boot Problem

It probably because there is a failure in the boot scripts to mount /usr which prevents the rest of the boot scripts from finding the right commands. Check if you have accidently made a copy of any boot-up script and place or leave them in /etc/rc.config.d. Remove that file or place it somewhere else if that's the case. You may heve to boot your system up in single user mode to do this.

Re: Boot Problem

Simon:

I found this error after installing PHSS_24191.

Boot into single user mode, mount /opt and /usr, execute "cp -p /opt/wt/newconfig/usr/lib/X11/extensions/libSX.1 /usr/lib/X11/extensions', and then reboot the system.

Or, as the alternative way, swremove patch PHSS_24191.

Re: Boot Problem

Hi
Thanks for the replies but the problem appears to lie with /dev/vg00/lvol7 (/usr) when in single user mode i do the following:
fsck -o full -y /dev/vg00/lvol7
i get the following :

log replay in progress
pass0 - checking structural files
pass1 - checking inode sanity and blocks
fileset 999 primary inode 2 marked bad, allocation flags (0x002f)
fileset 999 primary inode 2 partially allocated
fileset 999 primary inode 2 failed validation clear? (ynq)y
root inode for fileset 999 is invalid
full filesystem check required, exiting ...

Can anyone advise me how to get /usr back.

Thanks
Simon
