Description Trond Eivind Glomsrød 2000-02-20 05:36:34 EST
When you have a smbfs partition mounted (this was mounted as root, from a
Win95 box with a password supplied), the reboot procedure hangs when
unmounting file systems, making a hardware reboot necesarry.
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2000-02-21 11:03:59 EST
Hrmm... you do have the 'netfs' service on, correct?
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2000-02-21 12:15:59 EST
Can't reproduce this here on a hybrid beta/6.1 system.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2000-02-28 11:26:59 EST
Still can't reproduce it on a 6.2 beta Alpha system.

Are you doing anything on the smb partition?
Comment 4 Trond Eivind Glomsrød 2000-02-29 04:41:59 EST
It happens when netfs isn't started - I didn't start it, as the fs is mounted
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2000-03-27 17:13:59 EST
OK. A workaround (runs netfs stop automatically when needed)
should be in initscripts-5.04-1.
