Description Kyle Eschberger 2003-07-25 01:48:28 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)

Description of problem:
When I try to shut down my system via any method (init 6 or 0, reboot, 
shutdown -everything, main menu > logout or shutdown, etc..) they system hangs 
as soon as Gnome exits. 

For example: I issue init 6 from a terminal window and after a few seconds my 
screen goes black like it's suposed to when the GUI exits. A message is 
displayed that says "INIT: no more processes left in this run level" then 
nothing follows. 

At this point I can type characters to the screen but I get no real response. 
ctrl+alt+delete dosn't work. The system is still on but but nothing works i.e. 
can't ping the NIC. 

I have logged in in "failsafe" mode but when I try to shutdown from there it 
does the same thing. 

I also get this when I try to switch to run level 1 (via init 1)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.issue any type of shutdown command

Actual Results:  System hangs and siaplays the message "INIT: no more 
processes left in this run level"

Expected Results:  I should see the services being stopped then the system 
should shut down or reboot.

Additional info:

My hardware is IBM eServer xServer 330
I have an Adaptec AIC7892 RAIN controller running RAID 1 (firmware version 

I saw this problem ever since I loaded Linux with kernel version 2.4.18-3. I 
have run up2date and should be (according to up2date) on the latest release. 
Inlcuding kernel (now 2.4.20-19.7)

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases,
