From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Opera/6.11 (Linux 2.4.20-18.9 i686; U) [en]
Description of problem:
The shutdown process (after "reboot" or "halt" commands) hangs after the scripts in /etc/rc0.d or /etc/rc6.d are executed. This message is displayed:
"INIT: no more processes left in this runlevel".
Only way to reboot is by resetting the computer.
Filesystems aren't unmounted -> possible data loss.
Found out that there are no symlinks to "killall" and "halt" in /etc/rc0.d and /etc/rc6.d. After adding them manually, shutting down and rebooting works fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
What does 'rpm -V initscripts' say?
Uh, it says a lot of files are missing. Reinstalled it and now everything is fine.
Im fairly new to linux, how do I create th simlinks in /etc/rc0.d and
chkconfig. Note that you'll generally get better help posting to a
list than tagging onto a closed bug. :)
