Description Fred New 2002-08-12 05:44:38 EDT

Description of problem:
The power down sequence seems to turn off my hard disks before it has completed 
everything else.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.4.18-7.93 (i586)

How reproducible:
Always (Always during shutdown.  I haven't tried re-installing my system.)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Installed Limbo2 with a multi-disk, RAID0 root file system (hda5 & hdb3).
2. shutdown -h now

Actual Results:  Messages appearing at the end of the power down sequence 
(entered here by hand):

Halting system...
md: stopping all md devices.
md: marking sb clean...
md: updating md0 RAID superblock on device
md: hda5 [events: 0000001e]<6>(write) hda5's sb offset: 6217024
md: hdb3 [events: 0000001e]<6>(write) hdb3's sb offset: 239488
md: md0 switched to read-only mode.
flushing ide devices: hda hdb hdb: lost interrupt
Power down.

The line beginning "flushing ide devices" is actually two messages.  I can hear 
the hard disks turn off after the first "hdb".  The "hdb: lost interrupt" 
message appears after a little wait.

Expected Results:  I don't expect the "hdb: lost interrupt" message to appear.

Additional info:

In case this is hardware related, this machine is a Pentium 75 with a manual 
on/off switch.

This power-down activity doesn't seem to be corrupting my file system, so I 
don't know how important it is to fix this bug.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
