initlog hangs when running programs with much output
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:09:47 EDT
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
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?
this will be fixed in initscripts-4.29-1, which will be in the
next Raw Hide release.
