That's right... I'm using gentoo:
	--- SNIP ---
Linux version 2.6.14-rsbac-r1-rsbac (root at livecd) (gcc version 3.4.4
(Gentoo Hardened 3.4.4-r1, ssp-3.4.4-1.0, pie-8.7.8)) #3 SMP PREEMPT Mon

	--- SNAP ---

I can't ;-) because I've encrypted my root. Because of this, I use the
initrd with the script linuxrc to open the crypted dev and set it as new

The problem is, that the command "umount initrd" end with this error:
	--- SNIP ---
0000000038|do_umount() [sys_umount()]: umount failed -> calling
rsbac_mount for Device 01:00
	--- SNAP ---

And I can't follow the reason for this.

Is there a way, to open an simple console? I tried with "sh" in a lline
befor umount, but nothing happens.

Best regards,
