Description Andreas J. Bathe 2001-08-27 16:43:18 UTC
SysVinit-2.78-17, halt script in /etc/rc.d/init.d

I just built a backup server with five 100 GBytes-IDE-disks and realized
that after a poweroff command every new boot forces all big disks to check
the entire filesystem which needs a lot of time to do so.

So I increased the sleep in line 155 from 2 to ten seconds and now the
disks are clean again. Please increase that value so that servers with very
big disks don't suffer from a forced filesystem check.

take care

Comment 1 Andreas J. Bathe 2001-08-27 17:36:07 UTC
sorry, component is initscripts-5.83-1, not SysVinit
and further inverstigation showed that doubling the 2 secs to 4 is enough

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2005-02-22 20:45:11 UTC
Closing out bugs on older, no longer supported releases. Apologies for any lack
of response. Please reopen if it persists on current releases.

This is probably a kernel problem; it needs to offline the filesystems cleanly.
