I'm running diskless embedded system which mounts root-NFS over a PC
running RedHat v.6.
The embedded executes all initab functions but when it gets to login ;
it displays the contents of the file /etc/issue , runs /bin/login then
it doesn't log in at all ; the file passwd contains :
and there is no file /etc/shadow.
the gid and uid of all the files in the directory are 0 , 0 .
p.s. if I run the kernel over the embedded with "init=/bin/sh" option it
runs with no problem even executes some binaries.
what could be the problem ? if you encountered such a problem please
