Description Walter Mueller 2001-02-06 05:08:45 EST
shutdown shows the message

/etc/rc6.d/killall /etc/init.d/powertweak no such file or directory

This is because the file in /etc/init.d is called powertweakd but the 
execution of  /etc/init.d/pvmd touches the file /var/lock/subsys/powertweak

killall strips the directory part from the entry in
/var/lock/subsys/powertweak and
tries execute the file in /etc/init.d/powertweak which does not exist
Comment 1 Glen Foster 2001-02-06 19:20:15 EST
We (Red Hat) should really try to fix this before next release.
Comment 2 Tim Powers 2001-02-12 17:05:14 EST
OK. This is fixed in the powertweak-0.99.0-5 derived packages.  It has been
fixed by having the initscript touch /var/lock/subsys/powertweakd instead of 

Thanks for the heads up.
