I noticed that shutdown from scripts in /etc/rcS.d don't really work.
For example, when fsck for some filesystems fails at startup, you
are thrown into a shell to fix the problem. From that shell, you
have no chance to make a proper reboot. I have tried:
- shutdown -r now
- init 6
It don't really make a difference how I try to reboot. I alwas get
thrown out and the boot process continues. Finally I get the login
prompt. But I did _not_ want to continue the boot. I said I want
to _shutdown_. Why is this ignored?
Any ideas what I am missing here? How do I properly reboot from
a script in /etc/rcS.d?
