Description Ed McKenzie 2001-02-21 16:52:52 UTC
On fisher, both the beta release 5.59 and the rawhide 5.61 seem to be
broken with respect to runlevel 1 behavior. Issuing an 'init 1' from
runlevel 5 shuts down all services and prints a message to the effect of
'telling INIT to go to single-user mode' before hanging. After a few
seconds' pause, disk activity begins (no output to console) and gdm starts
up again. Very strange.

'init S' still seems to work.

This was hacked around in a later initscripts release. AFAICT, it's a kernel
problem.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2001-02-21 16:55:14 UTC
(basically, remove the 'exec' from the last line of init.d/single)
