Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 156413
xfs starts too early
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:53:36 EDT
Description of problem:
It starts at priority 8, which means it will fail with nfs-mounted /usr
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
reverted in 6.8.2-30 in dist-fc4-HEAD
How did rhgb ever work on systems that have /usr nfs mounted?
(meaning the X server binary is in /usr, so unavailable until NFS is mounted
on such systems)
It tries to start rhgb twice. Once before network filesystems are mounted,
An alternative to changing the default priority of xfs is to do
/sbin/service xfs start inside rc.sysinit or the gdm-early-login script,
although that seems icky.
Basically, rhgb silently failed with nfs /usr - you just didn't get it.
