Description Andrea Santilli 2006-12-08 11:57:59 EST
Description of problem:
i wanted to try initng so i installed it and reboot.

but the booting process got locked at 8%.
the problem is that system/selinux/dev wont boot.
i tried switching selinux to permissive mode but initng still got locked.
i also tried to completely disable selinux but the result is the same.

so i press CTRL+D when it gets locked but still after a while it tries to run
of course it gets locked again.

the i press CTRL+D again, and it reaches the login.

but after a while i get some error saying that smartd, dhcdbd and NetworkManager
cant start. at least until i run them with the /sbin/service utility.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install initng
2.reboot to an initng grub entry
3.it gets locked at system/selinux/dev and system/selinux/relabel
4.smartd, dhcdbd and NetworkManager cant start

What happens if you clean out all selinux stuff from the runlevels? Check
/etc/initng/default.runlevel and /etc/initng/system.virtual and remove all lines
starting with system/selinux. That's the best test I can come up with right now.

Since I don't know much about selinux I'll add Dragoran to cc list of this bug,
hoping he might have any good ideas...

how is the check_selinux supposed to work?

service system/selinux/dev {
        need = system/initial/mountvirtfs;
        script start = {
                check_selinux() {
                        while read dev mp fs stuff
                                [ "$fs" = "selinuxfs" ] && echo "$mp"
                # Check SELinux status
                selinuxfs=`/bin/awk '$3=="selinuxfs" {print $2}' /proc/mounts`
                echo "selinuxfs is $selinuxfs"

Replacing check_selinux call with the oldschool awk grep from proc mounts allows
it to proceed past this. Where does check_selinux know how to read from
/proc/mounts? got some hald weirdness with selinux, but dunno what that is yet. 
Comment 4 Daniel Malmgren 2007-02-05 05:09:16 EST
There are now new upstreams versions of both initng and initng-ifiles in Fedora
extras. I have no idea if this bug is solved, but let's hope it is ;-)

I'll close this bug, please reopen it if the error is still there.
