Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2001-02-05 16:03:08 UTC
In testing, this appears to be a kernel bug.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2001-02-05 16:03:15 UTC

Comment 3 Glen Foster 2001-02-05 22:50:40 UTC
We (Red Hat) should really try hard to fix this before next release.

Comment 4 Arjan van de Ven 2001-02-07 12:09:40 UTC
Works for me on newer kernels.

Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2001-02-07 23:17:12 UTC
How much newer (version number?)

Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2001-02-08 00:10:52 UTC
Doesn't work on 0.99.24 here.

Comment 7 Arjan van de Ven 2001-02-12 16:21:50 UTC
Works on .25 here. But my testbox runs the 7.0 glibc rpms.

Comment 8 Michael K. Johnson 2001-02-13 21:22:55 UTC
What version of SysVinit do you have, Arjan?

Comment 9 Bill Nottingham 2001-02-13 22:33:20 UTC
It still fails in 2.4.1-1.6.1 here. I suppose it  could be a glibc
issue as well.

Comment 10 Bill Nottingham 2001-02-14 00:09:23 UTC
Swiching back to 2.1.92-14 didn't help, so it's apparently not glibc.

Comment 11 Matt Wilson 2001-02-14 08:17:49 UTC
This seems to work...

Comment 12 Bill Nottingham 2001-02-14 23:17:24 UTC
I tried this with both the 7.0 (2.78-10) and 7.1 (2.78-11) SysVinit, same

Comment 13 Bill Nottingham 2001-02-14 23:17:55 UTC
Does it still work for you if you install the errata glibc on top of 7.0?

Comment 14 Arjan van de Ven 2001-02-15 00:49:03 UTC
My box has glibc 2.2-12

Comment 15 Bill Nottingham 2001-02-15 01:30:35 UTC
If you install the SysVinit and glibc from the beta, does it still work for you?

Comment 16 Michael K. Johnson 2001-03-01 03:05:15 UTC
Bill fixing in initscripts, bug in /etc/rc.d/init.d/single

Comment 17 Bill Nottingham 2001-03-01 03:20:31 UTC
Yes, but I'd still love to know why it worked until a new kernel.

Fixed in 5.68-1 or so.

Comment 18 angus young 2001-03-02 14:46:38 UTC
no problem with wolverin for me

Comment 19 Derek Tattersall 2001-03-06 18:00:22 UTC
Can't reproduce with kernel-2.4.2-0.1.20
