Description of problem:
After upgrading from FC1 to FC2 rebooting the system will hang at the
point where it says "turning off swap". Trying to do "swapoff -a" will
hang forever as well.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. swapoff -a
Actual Results: Nothing, it hangs
Expected Results: Aything else but a hang. Not turning of swapping
while rebooting shouldn't be much of a problem I imagine so I could
just take it out but I'd rather fix the problem.
A similar problem seems to have been reported for SuSE but without any
infromation that I could use to fix the problem:
The thread seems to suggest that having SCSI disks might be at the
heart of the problem and that is possible because at the moment of the
conversion from FC1 to FC2 the system contained an Adaptec SCSI card
with 2 CDROM drives. The card (and drives) have since been removed
from the system. Unfortunately I cannot test anymore if putting them
back would make everything work again.
This would probably be the kernel.
If you can't reproduce the problem now, then there's no point in
working together on a fix. :\
