Description Gianni Giardina 2004-01-08 08:11:26 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1)

Description of problem:
The init.d/halt script contains wrong unmounting code. This code
should try to unmount all file systems other than root and RAM disks,
one last time before remounting the remaining filesystems readonly.

What's wrong is a typo in an awk program string on line 176. I send in
attachment a patch to be added in the SOURCE directory of the source rpm.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get line 176 of the init.d/halt script:

# sed '1,175d ; 177,$d' /etc/rc.d/rc.d/init.d/halt
mount |  awk '/!( \/ |^\/dev\/root|^\/dev\/ram)/ { print $3 }' | \

2. do this (the original wrong code)

# mount |  awk '/!( \/ |^\/dev\/root|^\/dev\/ram)/ { print $3 }'

3. and now do this, instead (what the code should be)

# mount |  awk '!/( \/ |^\/dev\/root|^\/dev\/ram)/ { print $3 }'

Actual Results:  In step 2 you obtain nothing.
In step 3 you obtain all your mounted filesystems other than '/' and

Expected Results:  I expect the code on line 176 returns what the
comment on the preceding line says: "Try all file systems other than
root and RAM disks, one last time".

This bug caused one of my systems to hang on shutdown when it
tried to do the unmounting. Applying the fix from Gianni Giardina
eliminated the hang problem. Now I get proper shutdowns.

Fixed, will be in 7.47-1 - thanks!
