Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 7425
/ cannot be unmounted at shut down
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:53 EDT
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.
Are you using
What initscripts are you running?
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.
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
I'm running devfs on my system and ran into the same problem described by
firstname.lastname@example.org (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.
