Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 173572
Manual page of inittab shows rc 0-6 runlevel inside /etc/init.d
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:56:54 EDT
Description of problem:
The Manual page of /etc/inittab shows the following
# man inittab
/etc/init.d executes the S and K scripts upon change
# of runlevel.
# Runlevel 0 is halt.
# Runlevel 1 is single-user.
# Runlevels 2-5 are multi-user.
# Runlevel 6 is reboot.
Actually , the runlevels in redhat are in
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
As the man page states, these are examples of what you can write, not what is
actually used, so it's not deemed a critical issue to fix this.
This problem will be resolved in the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Red Hat does not currently plan to provide a resolution for this in a Red Hat
Enterprise Linux update for currently deployed systems.
With the goal of minimizing risk of change for deployed systems, and in response
to customer and partner requirements, Red Hat takes a conservative approach when
evaluating changes for inclusion in maintenance updates for currently deployed
products. The primary objectives of update releases are to enable new hardware
platform support and to resolve critical defects.
