Kernel Bug Tracker – Bug 11460
2.6.27-rc3 to -rc4 regression: init 0 hangs in halt
Last modified: 2008-09-01 02:29:56 UTC
Latest working kernel version:
Earliest failing kernel version:
Desktop machine root fs on /dev/md0
boot to kdm splash. No login
Hangs in halt.
netconsole stops after nfsd shutdown.
I've taken some photos and will upload/link later.
Steps to reproduce:
init 0 from multiuser (single user is OK)
