    Default After upgrade to 11.4 hard drives not properly unmounted during halt

    I did a zypper dup upgrade from 11.3 to 11.4 with no errors. My shutdown command has always been halt -h and during shutdown, I would always see verbose info about the drives being umounted, the "term" signal being sent, and the "kill" signal being sent. Since the upgrade, I only see the "term" signal being sent, followed by shutdown. On every boot since the upgrade, the system goes through several hundred lines of file repairing as the file system is not clean after shutdown. For whatever reason, the hard drives are apparently being killed before the umount is complete.
    I have changed no settings. The problem exists whether I do a shutdown from the KDE menu, or run halt -h as su from a terminal.

    Have you killed the shutdown bootsplash to see what command is failing?

    Have a read of Bug 626580. There are a few comments there about how to hack
    the halt script to get a readout of the messages. If there are such, you
    have to make a photo with a camera in order to report - writing to disk is
    impossible at that point. Alternatively, write to serial port on another
    computer, if you have that hardware (real serial port, not usb).

    I always have my system set to verbose. The only error was "missing" one line below "Halt.Local" in the shutdown sequence. I did seem to solve the problem though. I found a bug report concerning this and the workaround was to set "RUN_PARALLEL" to "no" in the system settings. That seemed to fix it. Maybe too much was happening too fast for the dismounts to go properly. Now I am again able to see the file systems dismount and the fsck is no longer happening during boot. The drives report as "Clean".

    I might answer this question before you ask it: Halt.Local is exactly where it is supposed to be. Other people are seeing the "missing" error as well. I'm not sure what the cause is, but the file is definitely not missing on my system.

    If on the kernel line in grub menu.lst you disable "quiet" you get a very
    verbose boot log that might help. Oops... we want a halt log, and that is
    not possible. Pity.

    I'm experiencing the same exact issue after upgrading from 11.3. I get unclean filesystems on my /home partition, as well as on an always mounted external disk. I'm also getting the "missing" halt.local file error on shutdown or reboot, although the file is in the /etc/init.d folder.

    What seems odd is that the word "missing" seems to appear one line below "halt.Local", at the end of a blank line.
    I did find that if I set "RUN_PARALLEL" in /System/Boot in the /etc/sysconfig/ editor to "NO", it seems to be a good workaround and I have had no further problems. I would note that the "home" partition fails to unmount and is remounted as "read only" during shutdown. This has only happened since the upgrade. It is not a show stopper.

    Bugzilla.

    > I'm also getting the "missing" halt.local file


    Not important, I think.

    Don't forget to report all that in Bugzilla. No excuses accepted.
