SUMMARY: stty error at boot time

From: Wai-Hung David Lee (

The problem is solved. Here is the original question:

This afternoon, a strange thing happened in my 3/50. While I was doing
normal work on the 3/50, the system suddenly died. After I tried to
reboot the machine, it always complained:

        -: stty: not found

Did anyone happen to meet the same type of trouble before? Any help will
be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

As many have pointed out, the file system is not mounted properly
causing various files including /usr/bin/stty to be unaccessible.
It turns out that the /etc/rc.boot file is corrupted and causes
mounting problems.
