redhat 7.0 won't shut down correctly
Posted on 2001-07-21
When shutting down my redhat 7.0 system, it gets to "unmounting mounted devices" and jsut stops. the hard drive light is going, and i am forced to power it off at the switch as it won't shut down. I ran fsck (fsck /dev/hdb) and it displayed "parallelizing fsck ..." and then went to a new line and didn't continue. I don't know exactly when this started, but i am still using the stock kernel (un-modified) that came with redhat 7.0 (2.2.16). I recently modified the boot process to enable ide-scsi emulation on the cd drive (hdd). I did so by adding append="hdd=ide-scsi" in teh lilo.conf file and insmod'ing ide-scsi in rc.local. it also recognizes my zip drive (hdc) as being scsi too now. any ideas?
