Howto Fix init: Id “x” respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes

 

 

1. Error we are getting on our Server in /var/log/messages

Jan 1 22:20:32 localhost init: Id “x” respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes
Jan 1 22:25:32 localhost init: Id “x” respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes

Jan 1 22:50:32 localhost init: Id “x” respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes

The problem happened because we removed “X Windows” or “Gnome” but we not change the boot mode

2. Fix that error by change boot mode on /etc/inittab and reboot server

[root@localhost ~]# vi /etc/inittab
#
# inittab is only used by upstart for the default runlevel.
#
# ADDING OTHER CONFIGURATION HERE WILL HAVE NO EFFECT ON YOUR SYSTEM.
#
# System initialization is started by /etc/init/rcS.conf
#
# Individual runlevels are started by /etc/init/rc.conf
#
# Ctrl-Alt-Delete is handled by /etc/init/control-alt-delete.conf
#
# Terminal gettys are handled by /etc/init/tty.conf and /etc/init/serial.conf,
# with configuration in /etc/sysconfig/init.
#
# For information on how to write upstart event handlers, or how
# upstart works, see init(5), init(8), and initctl(8).
#
# Default runlevel. The runlevels used are:
# 0 – halt (Do NOT set initdefault to this)
# 1 – Single user mode
# 2 – Multiuser, without NFS (The same as 3, if you do not have networking)
# 3 – Full multiuser mode
# 4 – unused
# 5 – X11
# 6 – reboot (Do NOT set initdefault to this)
#
id:3:initdefault:
[root@localhost ~]#
[root@localhost ~]# init 6

That’s all. Thanks for using IThelpblog.com.
