going to single mode from init 5 don't work
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:18:41 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [fr] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16-22 i586)
from xterm in root, just want to go in single mode:
stop all services correctly but after seen stopping fonts settings don't go
in single mode but restart in init 5.
Can reproduce the problem on 2 machines.
Any other information i can tell you...
Steps to Reproduce:
1.xterm: init 1
2.see the last message stopping fonts settings
3.not in init 1 but restart script for init 5
In testing, this appears to be a kernel bug.
*** Bug 25500 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
We (Red Hat) should really try hard to fix this before next release.
Works for me on newer kernels.
How much newer (version number?)
Doesn't work on 0.99.24 here.
Works on .25 here. But my testbox runs the 7.0 glibc rpms.
What version of SysVinit do you have, Arjan?
It still fails in 2.4.1-1.6.1 here. I suppose it could be a glibc
issue as well.
Swiching back to 2.1.92-14 didn't help, so it's apparently not glibc.
This seems to work...

I tried this with both the 7.0 (2.78-10) and 7.1 (2.78-11) SysVinit, same
Does it still work for you if you install the errata glibc on top of 7.0?
My box has glibc 2.2-12
If you install the SysVinit and glibc from the beta, does it still work for you?
Bill fixing in initscripts, bug in /etc/rc.d/init.d/single
Yes, but I'd still love to know why it worked until a new kernel.
Fixed in 5.68-1 or so.
no problem with wolverin for me
Can't reproduce with kernel-2.4.2-0.1.20
