Hi.

I keep getting Error state when I try to boot up one of the slave nodes. i
am using Scyld software. I looked at the log file for this node. This is
what I got. I am not sure how to fix this. Any suggestions?

node_up: Setting system clock.
node_up: TODO set interface netmask.
node_up: Configuring loopback interface.
setup_fs: Configuring node filesystems...
setup_fs: Using /etc/beowulf/fstab
setup_fs: Checking /dev/ram3 (type=ext2)...
setup_fs: Hmmm...This appears to be a ramdisk.
setup_fs: I'm going to try to try checking the filesystem (fsck) anyway.
setup_fs: If it is a RAM disk the following will fail harmlessly.
e2fsck 1.18, 11-Nov-1999 for EXT2 FS 0.5b, 95/08/09
ext2fs_check_if_mount: No such file or directory while determining whether
/dev/ram3 is mounted.

Couldn't find ext2 superblock, trying backup blocks...

The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2
filesystem.  If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2
filesystem (and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superblock
is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock:
    e2fsck -b 8193 <device>

e2fsck: Bad magic number in super-block while trying to open /dev/ram3

setup_fs: FSCK failure. (OK for RAM disks)
setup_fs: Creating ext2 on /dev/ram3...
mke2fs 1.18, 11-Nov-1999 for EXT2 FS 0.5b, 95/08/09
ext2fs_check_if_mount: No such file or directory while determining whether
/dev/ram3 is mounted.

setup_fs: Mounting /dev/ram3 on /rootfs//... (type=ext2; options=defaults)
setup_fs: Checking 192.168.1.1:/home (type=nfs)...
setup_fs: Mounting 192.168.1.1:/home on /rootfs//home... (type=nfs;
options=defaults)
mount: RPC: Unable to receive; errno = Connection refused
Failed to mount 192.168.1.1:/home on /home.
