Subject: [gentoo-user] udev not getting unmounted at shutdown/reboot
Date: Thu, 17 Nov 2005 17:54:24
1 Hello,
3 A few days ago my system hung and I had to do a reboot by pressing the power
4 button. Since then I get the following message while shutdown/reboots
6 Remounting remaining filesystems readonly [!!]
7 umount : udev busy - remounted read-only
8 umount : /: device is busy
9 umount : /: device is busy
10 umount : /: device is busy
11 Give root password for maintenance
12 (or type Control-D to continue):
14 If I don't do anything then the system reboots in approximately 5 seconds but
15 on reboot it says that "/" filesystem is NOT clean. I boot into Slackware (my
16 alternate distro) and during boot it replays over 100 transactions on Gentoo
17 partition. It is a kind of routine. I shutdown/reboot, get the above
18 mentioned message and then a "filesystem is NOT clean" on next boot. How can
19 I get rid of this annoyance? Can this error harm my install any way?
21 Versions I am currently using
22 sys-fs/udev-070-r1
23 sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-2.6.14-r2
25 I have tried re-emerging udev but it did not help.
26 Googling did not bring any results either.
28 Any ideas to solved this problem will be highly appreciated.
30 Regards,
31 Abhay
