Description gte855f 1999-03-06 00:08:15 UTC
I'm running kernel 2.2.2, RH 5.2, and have installed the
recent kernel 2.2 update rpms.  Upon reboot, the halt script
stops at the umount command.  It appears that the current
version of umount does not support smb mounted filesystems.
This caused severe data loss on my system.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-03-22 23:49:59 UTC
what version of mount are you running?

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-03-23 00:16:59 UTC
can you grab the mount-2.9 SRPM from Raw Hide/Starbuck and
recompile it and see if that works?

If so, we'll put it in the kernel-2.2 RPMS stuff.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 1999-03-26 16:54:59 UTC
I'm looking into why it's hanging; umount -a at the end
*should* work, especially since it works everywhere else...

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 1999-03-26 19:59:59 UTC
Bugger. umounting smb filesystems hangs if there's no network.
Looking into patching the kernel to support umount -f for

Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 1999-03-27 20:16:59 UTC
The fix, for now, is to add a line to the nfsfs startup
script, in the stop section, that says
'umount -a -t smbfs'.
This will be fixed in the next initscripts release, which will
have a 'netfs' script that mounts and unmounts network
filesystems (smb, ncp, nfs.)
(Eventually, we'll get the kernel fixed so that you can
forcefully umount a SMB share even if the network goes away.)
