Description Tjaun 2003-04-12 04:56:47 UTC

Description of problem:
Bad: I just installed my RH9. Then I upgrade my glibc using rpm -Fvh. During 
the upgrade, I encounter problem with it by having segmentation fault on some 
script stuff I remember. From there on I could not input anything at all and I 
got to reset the system. Upon rebooting, the boot-up process hangs and produce 
the following error: Init respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes on each 
mingetty ID. I could not boot to reach the login screen. By the way, my 
mingetty is configured with only 3 of it rather then 6 of it just to save some 

To be more precise on the error during the boot-up process here is what shown:

INIT: Id "x" respawning too fast : disabled for 5 minutes

x = mingetty 1,2,3,4,5,6

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Additional info:

I installed numerous related glibc together during the installation. Which 
means I did a rpm -Fvh glibc-2.3.2-27.9.i386.rpm glibc-devel-2.3.2-
27.9.i386.rpm glibc-debug-2.3.2-27.9.i386.rpm in the command.
