booting with "confirm" causes questions during shutdown
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:37:39 EDT
Description of problem:
If you pass "confirm" on the kernel commandline to enable interface startup, you
get asked questions when changing runlevels or when shutting down.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot with confirm passed ot the kernel
2. change runlevels or reboot
You are asked for confirmation. sometimes you can't answer. Anyway, rebooting
should not stop waiting for user interaction. I never saw this behavior in
Booting with confirm should not affect anything except for bootup. Whatever
checks confirm should also probably check whether booting is currently in
progress. I haven't looked at the code, but I'm sure I've never seen this before.
I had booted in confirm mode in runlevel 3 and run init 5 after getting my
XF86Config set up. I got prompted for several items. Later, I rebooted in
level 5 with confirm (and nogui) so I could disable some services temporarily.
When I got everything set up and rebooted, I got prompted for S00killall and
S01reboot even though I had initiated the reboot from the graphical login screen.
Will be fixed in 7.31-1.
