Description Thorsten Stärk 2006-03-28 06:53:22 EST
Description of problem:
I want to start my computer to change its IP address because it was moved to
another subnet. When starting, I could not abort "Starting NFS service". Neither
did this step succeed, because the IP subnet had changed.

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

How reproducible:
Start computer with NIC attached to a wrong subnet.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a subnet (e.g.
2. Have the IP set to a wrong subnet (e.g.
3. Start the computer
Actual results:
The computer hangs at the step "Starting NFS service". This step cannot be aborted.

Expected results:
The computer hangs at the step "Starting NFS service". This step can be aborted
with CTRL_C.

I suppose the question is, what is eating the CTRL-C?

Note that you can boot with 'confirm' to skip this step.
Comment 2 Thorsten Stärk 2006-04-04 03:34:11 EDT
Thanks for the hint, Bill.
The expected result is: CTRL_C aborts this step.
If CTRL_C is "eaten", I do not know.

This bug is not currently scheduled to be fixed for RHEL 3 or RHEL 4. We're
looking at this issue for RHEL 5.
