I get this message repeatedly on the console after booting a simple GNAP
iso in vmware:

 

Init: Id "s0" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes

 

What does this mean?

 

----I also see this in the log:

 

agetty: ttyS0: ioctl: Input/output error

 

----and while booting I saw some thing like:

 

error communicating with the kernel

 

 

----my overly.conf contains (I don't have any conf files in overly for
htbinit or openvpn tho so am not surprised by htb and vpn errors in
log):

 

EMPTY_ROOTPASS=yes

 

IP_RELAY=no

 

#use two network cards

NBCARDS=2

 

TC_TYPE=htbinit

USE_TC=yes

USE_SSH=yes

USE_VPN=yes

 

# Start the 'shorewall' firewall script at startup

USE_FW=yes

FW_TYPE=shorewall

 

# Use South African Standard Time (UTC+2)

#TIMEZONE=SAST

 

# Use a french keyboard layout

KEYMAP=us

 

# Time server
