Description Geoff Reedy 1999-12-01 18:04:58 UTC
The openldap rpm installs and into /usr/lib
creating a dependancy on /usr if the ldap nss module is used.  This
prevents a clean shutdown as the initscripts, in order to unmount
filesystems, kill all processes using filesystems other than /.  If the
ldap nss module is in use, this includes bash, which is running the halt

I would like to add my confirmation - I shutdown my server so seldom that this
one is hard to notice, but I did run into it recently also.  This isn't good
for the health of /usr, which was never unmounted and had to be checked on
restarting the server.

Comment 2 Geoff Reedy 1999-12-30 16:50:59 UTC
Is anything being done about this?

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2000-01-18 20:23:59 UTC
This is fixed in the nss_ldap module in Raw Hide
(and actually has been for quite a while.) Sorry
about the delay on the bug response.
