Rebooting into RH7 failed, becauce inittab could not be found. In fact
the filesystem was completely messed up, with /dev empty, lots of device
nodes in /etc, and files missing all over the place. I had to reinstall
RH7 from scratch.
I do not understand how this could happen during a remounting root rw.
Is the filesystem really that unstable?
Am I right in suspecting DMA, which was enabled at the time? Any other
ideas? Is it a known problem?
This is on a 450 MHz AMD-K6 with the following IDE controller:
00:07.1 IDE interface: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82C586 IDE [Apollo] (rev 06)
[I know this is not a very good trouble report, but it will have to do for
the time beeing. I hope to do more testing at a later time.]
PS. This is _not_ the same system that I reported IDE busy errors for.
