hi, im new here.

we have servers with centos 4. yesterday one of it crash and cold rebooted.

reboot process run well until finally we found that some of
/etc/inittab configurations doesn't loaded properly, like no virtual
terminal available and svscanboot not executed.

i assumed that these configurations not loaded:

# Run gettys in standard runlevels
1:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty1
2:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty2
3:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty3
4:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty4
5:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty5
6:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty6

# Run xdm in runlevel 5
x:5:respawn:/etc/X11/prefdm -nodaemon


clearly this is not normal and how to fix it ?

please help!

thank you.
