Subject: general: "shutdown -r" does not reboot
Date: Thu, 14 Apr 2011 13:43:11 +0200
Package: general
Severity: normal

Hello,

when I am logged in (by ssh or on tty1-tty6) as root on the machine where I am
writing this from and enter "shutdown -r now", the machine does not reboot,
but instead I get the message:

Give root password for maintenance (or press Control-D to continue):

Regards
  Christoph

I'm not a debian bug handler but...

try "shutdown -t0 -r now" and re-submit if it doesn't work (I think 
specifying time is required?)

dang I didnt' read all.  you should only see that for entering runlevel 
one.  are you sure you didn't reboot ?

sulogin prints that message

mabye it's because you specified no time?

it is remotely possible new init scripts somehow get you to runlevel 1, 
init(1) invokes sulogin(1), and reboot is never executed.

you didn't delete any rc.d scripts in /etc/ did you?

Hello,

the reason for the problem was that when upgrading from lenny to
squeeze, some things have gone wrong with the runlevel links
in /etc/rc?.d so that they were not called in a correct order. I
deleted all runlevel links and recreated them by 'dpkg-reconfigure
sysv-rc'; now rebooting works ok.

Regards
  Christoph
