Description Leo Bergolth 1999-08-10 16:37:05 UTC
When I call
action "Checking filesystem quotas" /sbin/quotacheck -va
in rc.sysinit, after the filesystems have been mounted,
quotacheck hangs after some disk activity forever.

Running quotacheck -va directly, without action works.

It looks like the syslog call of initlog blocks.
(quotacheck -v displays a rotating bar which causes very
much output.)

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-08-10 16:43:59 UTC
Aack, first fsck, now quotacheck.

OK, try the following:
1) upgrade to the latest initscripts in Raw Hide.
2) add an 'ignore' regexp to /etc/initlog.conf that
catches quotacheck's progress bar.

Does this help?

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-08-10 18:35:59 UTC
this will be fixed in initscripts-4.29-1, which will be in the
next Raw Hide release.
