Description of problem:
As I don't know which component is responsible here I file it against

After logging out of the console I get this message in /var/log/messages:

init: open(/dev/pts/0): No such file or directory

This does not happen if I login via ssh.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login / Logout

Please attach your inittab.

The only thing I've changed against the stock FC3 inittab was to disable

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2005-01-28 06:39:26 UTC
I'm assuming you're using rhgb.

Does /proc/*/fd for mingetty look odd at all?
What does /proc/*/environ for mingetty  have for CONSOLE?

Comment 4 Bernd Bartmann 2005-01-28 16:50:10 UTC
mingetty for tty4 is process 5064
ls -l /proc/5064/fd gives:
lrwx------  1 root root 64 28. Jan 17:32 0 -> /dev/tty4
lrwx------  1 root root 64 28. Jan 17:32 1 -> /dev/tty4
lrwx------  1 root root 64 28. Jan 17:32 2 -> /dev/tty4
lr-x------  1 root root 64 28. Jan 17:32 3 -> /init

CONSOLE=/dev/pts/0 in /proc/5064/environ

I get similar results for all other ttys.

patch to fix broken rhgb exit() behavior

Try this. If you need a test build of the package, shout.

Comment 6 Bernd Bartmann 2005-01-29 11:31:01 UTC
Thanks Bill, your patch makes the error message go away.

Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 2005-01-31 21:27:33 UTC
Update for rhgb pushed.

Comment 8 Orion Poplawski 2006-12-15 18:03:31 UTC
I'm seeing this again on FC6 with rhgb-0.16.4-3.fc6, though only on one machine
out of four installed so far.

Changes console right before exit

There seems to be a regression so that last system(FIX_INIT_COMMAND) before
quiting rhgb is lost. This patch adds that line. I did not get any init: open
(..) errors after applying this patch.

Comment 10 Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-08-14 20:57:39 UTC
This should be fixed in F7.
