Hmm, I am not sure what the kernel had to do with login problems - I take it
a redhat supplied kernel does not give you this grief.
It appears proc is not being mounted
this is the command in /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit
action "Mounting proc filesystem: " mount -n -t proc /proc /proc
This is the same on a redhat 6.1 box
After that it goes into a downwards spiral because there is no proc and the
init can't write it's parameters in there. Is this something which was on
the buglist for test5? It would make a great candidate.
I recompiled the kernel with kgcc (gcc 2.91.66 indeed) and it compiles
everything without problems. This is indeed a oneline fix.
Still no difference in boot behaviour.
And oh, because of this /proc maddness you can't boot single user....
