Description Pekka Pietikäinen 2001-09-04 02:45:52 EDT
Description of Problem:

When shutting the system down, the shutdown process sometimes gets
stuck when running quotaoff.

I'm still trying to figure out what triggers it, one thing
that _might_ be related is having cd's mounted (with
and without autofs), that's about the only "funny" thing
with the things I have mounted, I'm not even using quotas. 

In any case, it's pretty random (and running quotaoff -a when the
system is running always seems to work, at least now)

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


How Reproducible:

shutdown, sometimes

Actual Results:

quotaoff gets stuck 

Expected Results:

it doesn't get stuck

are you actually sure it _is_ quota that is hanging, and not the thing that 
comes right after it in the shutdown process?

What comes right after it is some umount stuff for both loopback and local 
filesystems.  The random hangup then might have something to do with a bad 
umount/autofs interaction?
Comment 2 Pekka Pietikäinen 2001-09-04 09:23:00 EDT
Last time it happened I poked around with ctrl-scrolllock and quotaoff
was still running.  I'll add some debug echos in there just to be sure.

pp is this still an open issue?
ie can I close this or is there more work to be done here?


Comment 4 Pekka Pietikäinen 2001-12-20 11:32:02 EST
Can't remember seeing the problem in the 7.2 release, so it's probably
been fixed by either quota-3.01pre9 or some other package. Close it and
if I see ever see it again I'll just reopen it.
