Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 636749
System lies about going to reboot
Last modified: 2010-11-21 16:25:21 EST
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 email@example.com on pts/0 (Thu, 23 Sep 2010 09:11:57 +0200):
The system is going down for reboot NOW! (yes sure)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The ordering cycle is the one you described in bug 635066?
This bug is about the system claiming it is rebooting, even though it isn't
(there is a similar bug for init 1)
Moving systemd bugs to f15, since the systemd feature got delayed.
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.
