Description Warren Togami 2007-11-07 03:46:02 UTC

By default bootchartd mounts its tmpfs in /tmp, which is mounted over by
readonly-root mode.  Even if you edit /sbin/bootchartd to use /dev instead, it
fails to stop collection when configured to stop if it sees a process like "Xorg".  

Furthermore, "/sbin/bootchartd stop" fails due to some kind of race condition.

bash-32# /sbin/bootchartd stop
user defined signal 1
bash-32# tar: header: file changed as we read it
rm: cannot remove '/dev/bootchart.wgA342/*': No such file or directory
rmdir: /dev/bootchart.wgA342: No such file or directory
tar: proc_ps.log: file changed as we read it
tar: proc_stat.log: Cannot stat: No such file or directory
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
rm: cannot remove '/dev/bootchart.wgA342/*': No such file or directory
rmdir: /dev/bootchart.wgA342: No such file or directory
