So I have been battling with this for the last couple of days and was wondering if anyone would tell mewhat is the bare minimum of scripts required (to get to runlevel 3 equivalent on a base system) using Ubuntu scripts to boot a system?
I have been trying to use a combination of the following scripts:
Would I require more than this to get to a console login screen?
I feel I must be missing something as I am getting an init error in the mountall script and never progressing any further :(Unfortunately as I am unable to get very far in there also is not a great deal of logging for me to investigate to see where I am coming unstuck
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated :)
I would also add, as per below, I have a fresh CLFS system with the exclusion of the System-V applications have not been installed.
PS. Let me know if I need to provide more detail for someone to assist me?

Hey Guys
Thanks for the feedback. I am just up to this now with my CLFS system. I have Ubuntu so have been using that as a guidebut still have a question regarding the replacement (or need for) the 3 rc*.conf scripts.
If I am never to use sysvinit or any of its files, do I a) still need them or b) have to replace them?
My main question here is about how each of these in the description say how they are for "System V ..."
Also, for example, the rcS.conf says:
# This task handles the old System V-style single-user mode.
So my question here would be, what handles the new single-user mode? It appears there are no other *.conffiles that are launched on runlevel S (or does that mean it is no longer required if not using System V?)
Sorry if I have missed the point within your posts :( I am just keen to start with a clean slate (ie no System V anywhere).
Look forward to hearing from someone :)
