I have 2.2.15 kernel patched with Solar Designer patch.
Sometimes init segfaults and a message like:
Init core dump. Sleeping for 60 sec.
This is not the exact message. I dont remeber the original one.
I sent this to Miquel von Smoorenburg but he couldnt help me.
If you want the core file send me a mail.
I didnt find how to send it with bugzilla .
The core file won't be much use without debugging symbols in SysVinit.
Does it work when the kernel isn't patched?
I'm going to close this as WORKSFORME; it's not something I've ever
seen. Please reopen if you can reproduce it.
