Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 825091
Reboot hangs at the end
Last modified: 2012-09-04 13:56:21 EDT
Description of problem:
After unmounting all the drives, the system shows:
pivot failed: invalid argument
But nothing else happens after that.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 16, up to date as of May 24, 2012.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Any for of reboot, shutdown works fine.
Dell precision laptop with i7-28200M CPU
Is this a regression? i.e. Did you have reboot working fine before installing some updates?

> pivot failed: invalid argument
There may be something wrong with your initramfs. Try regenerating it with "dracut -f".
> Restarting system
This message is printed by the kernel. Reassigning.
Does a forced reboot work?:
sync && reboot -f
Would changing the kernel's reboot method with the "reboot=..." parameter help? See this comment for possible values:
