Umount problem after prelink -avm
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:52:49 EDT
Description of problem:
After installing RH9 (and betas that preceeded it) and running
causes following error during next boot:
umount: /: device is busy
If the same command is run later, no error appear.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
prelink coming with RH9.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RH9
2. Run prelink -avm
3. Reboot and look at the messages
umount gives errors.
umount goes ok.
I know the instructions to reproduce are PITA and it may well be that prelinking
some certain files is the cause but since I don't have a slightest clue what it
might be, I won't iterate this. However, as noted above, I've noticed this same
behaviour with RH9, and every 8.0.9x betas. Probably with RH8, too, IIRC.
help? Without that, /sbin/init is still using the old copy of libc and thus
the root is really busy.
But of course! telinit u solved the problem. Perhaps this could be mentioned on
the man page, there was some noise about this amongst the Debian tribe IIRC.
FWIW, I can now reproduce this naturally with:
prelink 0.3.0-1 and later (ATM 0.3.0-6) should deal with it in the cron script
which does the prelinking automatically.
