CPU & Memory Strange Problem

I did an installation of Redhat 7.1 and it seem to install smoothly. I go and reboot and I get the following message:

"INIT: Id "x" respawing too fast: disabled for 5 minutes"

The screen flashes 4 times every 10 seconds or so.

I can't seem to figure why this does this. It might be a simple fix but I'm at a stand still.

Thanks for Info
John

In /etc/inittab, look at the line with "x" as the first field. It will have "respawn" in the third field. For now, change "respawn" to "off" and do a "init q" to force a reread of inittab. Then you need to figure out if the line should be there and, if it should, how to fix it.

The most common cause is a getty that cannot read the device file.

Once you figure it out, go back to "respawn".
