Re: fatal parsing error

rc.log is a list of all the steps taken during startup and is normally dozens of lines in length. It would help to see the lines that are shown prior to these error messages.

On the other hand, if these are the only lines in /etc/rc.log, then you probably have a bad file in in /etc/rc.config.d. Find the most recent files in /etc/rc.config.d like this:

ls -lrt /etc/rc.config.d

There must NEVER be any junk files in this directory -- EVERY file will be sourced in this directory during bootup.
