Description Michal Schmidt 2010-07-27 14:24:25 UTC
Description of problem:
Trying to reboot in any of the usual ways (CTRL+ALT+DEL, init 6, "Restart" from gdm) results in a power-off instead.

It turns out that /etc/init.d/halt passes a "-p" parameter to /sbin/reboot (a symlink to systemctl) and unlike upstart, systemd does not ignore it in this case.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have upstart-sysvinit installed.
2. Run "reboot -f -p". Notice it causes a reboot, "-p" is correctly ignored.
3. Uninstall upstart-sysvinit, install systemd-sysvinit instead.
4. Run "reboot -f -p".
Actual results:
It powers off instead of reboot.

Expected results:
The "-p" parameter should be ignored when systemctl is invoked as "reboot".

Adding to F14Beta blocker list per the following Beta release criteria (https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_14_Beta_Release_Criteria)

  "The desktop's offered mechanisms for shutting down, logging out
   and rebooting must work "
