Default [Q] CWM can't open /cache/

I have been having this issue with CWM ever since I updated CWM, and I can't figure out how to solve it. I'm running CWM v 6.0.4.5 and Slim Kat 3.8(don't want to update until problem is fixed).

Errors:

E: Can't open /cache/recovery/log
E: Can't open /cache/recovery/last_log


I've searched and found a few solutions:

1) unmount and mount SD card(didn't work)
2) go back to stock (my last resort)
3) wipe cache(didn't work)

There's a lot of threads about this issue, but I can't really find a solution and most cases their S3 can't boot while mine runs perfectly fine. Any advice would be appreciated.

Helps if you tell us exactly what you want to do, and exactly what you are doing and have done.

All I can say from your posted info is can you not just mount /cache and then access the files located on it? Did you try going back to the previous version recovery? Have you given TWRP a shot? Why are you trying to mount the individual files/folders? Maybe I missed something, but Im not sure what you are trying to accomplish.....

Those errors appear when I enter CWM without doing anything. It started appearing after updating my recovery and flashing Slimkat.

Woops, it's actually:

E: Can't open /cache/recovery/log
E: Can't open /cache/recovery/last_log

Oh, well thats weird! I would try a previous version of CWM, try TWRP, and/or try a different kernel.

CWM does that. It's harmless.

I'm pretty sure the issues I had with d2tmo TWRP have been fixed, safe to recommend. Switch to TWRP. Also good ROM choice.
