Actually not.
The 'pivot root' command just above is the attempt to switch from the 
initrd to the regular file system. The "cannot open dev/console" is 
almost always caused by the fact that the normal root file system could 
not be mounted and thus the _normal_ /dev/ directory not being available.

A common cause for the root file system being unable to mount is missing 
driver(s) for the root filesystem in the initrd, but in this case I think 
cause of the segmentation fault needs to be looked into.
