If upstart is not the culprit, please reassign this to the component you consider to be responsible for this.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ rpm -qf /sbin/init
Always. Confirmed on test-list.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. default install of Fedora 14 Beta
2. log into GNOME
3. run "init 1" (or "init 3") as superuser root
Some processes are killed, some malfunction, X survives the run-level change, users are not logged out.
A clean switch to single-user mode on virtual console.
$ rpm -q initscripts
which works. Some of the fixes in 9.20-1 could be the cause of the issue.
It worked once only. Then initscripts-9.19-1.fc14 also failed multiple times in a row.
The problem is somewhere in the way how gdm-binary or gnome-session works.
When gnome-session starts, it becomes session leader and therefore it's not killed
when gdm-binary receives SIGTERM.
This has appeared between gdm-2.28.2-3.fc12 and gdm-2.30.2-1.fc13
Sorry, it didn't appeared in gdm-2.30.2-1.fc13 but in gnome-session-2.30.0-1.fc13.x86_64
I have just posted the bug 665540 which could be correlated to this one.
This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX.
(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
