Description of problem:

The system claims it is going to reboot, but aborts silently, without notifying the admin

# /sbin/init 6
Failed to issue method call: Transaction order is cyclic. See system logs for details.

Broadcast message from nim@arekh.okg on pts/0 (Thu, 23 Sep 2010 09:11:57 +0200):

The system is going down for reboot NOW! (yes sure)

The ordering cycle is the one you described in bug 635066?
Comment 2 Nicolas Mailhot 2010-09-23 03:58:35 EDT

This bug is about the system claiming it is rebooting, even though it isn't
(there is a similar bug for init 1)
Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2010-10-08 18:46:25 EDT
Moving systemd bugs to f15, since the systemd feature got delayed.
Comment 4 Lennart Poettering 2010-11-21 16:25:21 EST
This has been fixed in v13. Cyclic deps do not cause boot to fail anymore, and neither do any services/mounts that fail to shut down.
