Description Shinya Narahara 2001-08-22 09:09:37 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.75 [ja] (WinNT; U)

Description of problem:
The command "init 1" meens to be single user mode, but on
RH7.2beta, this causes a strange key input.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install RH7.2beta.
2.login as root.
3.init 1

Actual Results:  sh-2.05# ps
sh: s: command not found

Expected Results:  sh-2.05# ps
  PID TTY             TIME CMD
 6426 pts/0       00:00:00 su
 6428 pts/0       00:00:00 bash
 6474 pts/0       00:00:00 sh
 6475 pts/0       00:00:00 ps

Additional info:

If you input "exit" immediately after "init 1", you can input any command normaly.
I guess this is caused by multiple shell on runlevel 1.
But runlevel 1 is very useful and needed for many administrator, hence this
SHOULD be fixed.
