Description Thomas Heinz 2008-06-19 01:56:57 UTC
# /etc/init.d/vmware stop
causes a hang which e.g. prevents `rc shutdown` from shutting the system down properly.

The hang is caused by
umount /proc/fs/vmblock/mountPoint

Temporary workaround: Uncomment
mount -t vmblock none /proc/fs/vmblock/mountPoint || eend 1 "Failed to mount the vmblock filesystem"
in /etc/init.d/vmware

I am using sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-2.6.23-r6.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:

Portage (default-linux/x86/2006.1/desktop, gcc-3.4.6-hardened, glibc-2.6.1-r0, 2.6.23-gentoo-r6 i686)
System uname: 2.6.23-gentoo-r6 i686 AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+

Thanks for the report Thomas, we'll look into it...
Comment 2 Jake Schneider 2008-07-01 15:41:04 UTC
I have the same bug here, however, the line you specified in your /etc/init.d/vmware file was uncommented by default in my build.  The workaround I have employed is to comment out the "umount /proc/fs/vmblock/mountPoint > /dev/null 2>&1" line in the stop() section of the script.  

This works because this file system will be unmounted in your /etc/vmware/init.d/vmware script called out in the very next line of your /etc/init.d/vmware script.  It appears that the hang occurs because we are trying to unmount this file system twice.

Ok, thanks very much for the information Jake, that should be fairly easy to fix.  I'll have to have a reread of the vmware provided init scripts and those we provide to get all the ordering correct.  Hopefully I'll have something in the overlay by the middle of next week.  If not, do please give me a prod, I'm quite busy at the moment and I'm forgetting all kinds of things I shouldn't!  Thanks!  5:)
