Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 187082
cannot abort "Starting NFS service"
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:59:09 EDT
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):
Start computer with NIC attached to a wrong subnet.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a subnet (e.g. 10.0.0.0)
2. Have the IP set to a wrong subnet (e.g. 172.16.42.1)
3. Start the computer
The computer hangs at the step "Starting NFS service". This step cannot be aborted.
The computer hangs at the step "Starting NFS service". This step can be aborted
I suppose the question is, what is eating the CTRL-C?
Note that you can boot with 'confirm' to skip this step.
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.
