Description Krzysztof Halasa 2004-07-06 21:18:44 UTC
Description of problem:
/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit treats fsck on root filesystem exiting with
code 2 as error and stops automatic system startup with sulogin.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
7.53-1 and probably earlier versions

How reproducible:
While system is booting when root filesystem needs fsck and then
reboot is required for the kernel to update in-memory filesystem

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Not trivial: umount /
2. Damage root fs data in a way which will cause fsck to return code 2
3. reboot system
Actual results:
/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit prints:
   *** An error occurred during the file system check.
   *** Dropping you to a shell; the system will reboot
   *** when you leave the shell.
and runs sulogin.

Expected results:
System is rebooted automatically, probably after a short pause
allowing watching admin to react somehow. After reboot root
filesystem would be clean and fsck would not be run on it.
