I rebooted and something has gone a tad screwey ...

I can't run any kind of terminal ... it complains about there not being enough ptys. The reason for this is that /dev/pts is not being mounted correctly at startup. It can be mounted manually outside of X, and then I can start terminal apps again inside of X.

The SD card isn't mounted on startup, although it does mount correctly if I manually mount it outside of X.

On startup, I'm seeing the following messages:

VFS: mounted root (jffs2 filesystem) readonly. (I can't remember if this is normal?)

Definitely not normal is this:

Cannot create link /etc/mtab
perhaps there is a stale lockfile?

Can anyone give me a pointer?

Cheers,

Mike.

Problem solved: somehow there were /etc/mtab, /etc/mtab.tmp and /etc/mtab~ files left over from the reboot. I deleted them all. Normal service resumed.
