Description Wang Anli 2004-04-12 02:11:05 EDT
Description of problem:
The bug is about installation of RHEL4_Alpha2. 
After the installation of RHEL4_A2 completes, the system inform 
pressing the enter to reboot the system, I followed the step, but the 
rebooting can't work.

At the same time, I can't reboot the system using commands 
like 'reboot','shutdown -r now',etc.

The more information about this:

in tty1: the status is '-/bin/sh-2.05b#'. When I enter 'reboot', the 
reply is as the following:
        'WARING:could not determine runlevel - doing soft reboot
	(it's better to use shutdown instead of reboot from the 
command line)'
	enter 'shutdown -r now'
	the reply is following:
		'(runing in test mode)
		anaconda installer init version 9.91 starting.
		mounting /proc filesystem...done
		mounting /dev/pts(unix98 pty) filesystem...done
		mounting /sys filesystem...done'
	Then go back to the display of '-/bin/sh-2.05b#' 

in tty3: After I entered the roboot, the reply is 'shutdown: shutting 
down for 
system reboot'. But there has nothing to do then.

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

enter to reboot the system. Press the enter, the bug will be 

Actual results:

Expected results:
Reboot the system successfully.
