quotaoff sometimes hangs on shutdown
Last modified: 2009-10-27 13:42:14 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):
quotaoff gets stuck
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
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?
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.
Just clearing out old bugs, haven't seen this one in ages either...
