Description sturmann 1999-11-29 18:31:17 EST
Linux lives on /dev/hda7 in my laptop (Micron GooBook). When I shut down
linux it complains that it cannot unmount / because / is busy, so is /proc.

Then when linux boots up next time I see a message:

"/dev/hda7 was not cleanly unmounted, check forced.
Deleted inode 64760 has zero dtime. FIXED."

and it boots up with no problem.

This is only an anoying detail but I would like to know its reason.

Regards,

Laszlo Sturmann

Are you using
a) devfs
b) quotas?

What initscripts are you running?
Comment 2 sturmann 1999-12-01 17:22:59 EST
I have installed Redhat 6.1.
The default initscripts in Redhat 6.1 is running. I didn't change them.
Is far as I know I don't use devfs and quotas.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 1999-12-02 18:12:59 EST
Does it go away if you upgrade to the latest errata initscripts?

closed for lack of feedback

Just to provide some feedback on this problem for anyone else who runs into
it...

I'm running devfs on my system and ran into the same problem described by
sturmann@earthlink.net (neither / nor /proc would unmount automatically and the
system would fail to reboot).  The problem was especially annoying when a
situation arose such that I wanted to reboot the system remotely.

Fortunately, the latest initscripts package included in the RH6.2beta
distribution (initscripts-4.91-1) fixes this problem.

Thanks, guys!
