initng hangs on system/selinux/dev, system/initial failed.
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:01 EST
Description of problem:
Booting with initng drops to the root shell (su_login), after displaying the
errors found below.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Initng displays the following: ("..." skips irrelevant output)
bash_helper[system/initial/virtcheck]: line 5: /var/initng_isvirt: Read-only
mount: proc already mounted
mount: sys already mounted or /sys busy
12% system/udev/filldev [done] ( done in 5286ms )
20:21:31 -- WARN: Timeout for start rpocess, service system/selinux/dev.
Killing this process now.

20:21:31 -- FAIL: Service system/initial failed, this is critical, going su_login!!
This is a sulogin offer,
you will be able to login for 2 times (now 00),
Give root password for maintenance (or type Control-D to continue)
Service system/mountfs/service FAILED
Sorry for the long delay. Have you tried this on 0.6.10?
Sorry once again. Noticed that 0.6.10 was never built for FC-6. This is now
fixed so that you can easily try with 0.6.10...
Negative on 0.6.10 pushed for FC6.

> Negative on 0.6.10 pushed for FC6.
Err, that is, 0.6.10 has not been pushed for FC6.
OK, got the update. I'm still experiencing the same error.
initng hangs after 12% system/udev/filldev for eight to ten minutes, then the
exact same error (as in the original post) is reproduced. This has been
replicated on two unrelated computers.
Did you also upgrade initng-ifiles to latest (0.1.2-1)?
Alright, I refreshed the packages and that fixes the selinux problem. However,
now, after eth0 failed due to lack of available connection, every service
thereafter began to time out, beginning with service/iptables.
I'd file this in another bug but it's just a continuation of the same.
Ok, I'll close this bug...
