Comment 155 for bug 1073433

Bernd (midox) wrote :

due the respawn of some processes i think they are (re)started again even on shutdown
so they are running if the / is remounted readonly
and that is why it fails

i think upstart should insure that all processes are killed (also the respawning) at the moment we mount / readonly on halt or reboot

my workaround(dirty hack) in the moment
is adding a killall5 -9 just before line 86 of /etc/rc6/umountroot
that works for me and gives no fsck's on my next (re)boots

conclusion for me it's not an NM or Kernel failure
its just a wrong way the shutdown procedure is handled by mixing upstart and sysv initscripts
