Description Xuefer 2014-01-02 03:39:37 UTC
boot stuck at "Caching service dependencies" again. this time, caused by monotone init script

to reproduce:
rm /etc/conf.d/monotone (or just remove MTN_KEY setting)
touch /etc/init.d/monotone (just trigger make re re-cache)

to reproduce and see what's happening:
boot into single user mode by init=/bin/bash
# mkdir /dev/pts
# mount -t devpts /dev/pts
# screen (or /usr/bin/sshd, or agetty? just to open multiple terminal)
# rc
 ... Caching service dependencies ..
in another terminal, do:
# ps -efH
... hostname --fqdn 

we can see the 'hostname --fqdn' just sit there

reason analyzed:
/etc/init.d/monotone is invoking `hostname --fqdn` even if only `/etc/init.d/monotone depend` is called
network is not provided at boot time but hostname --fqdn needs network, thus stuck

case that can't be reproduce:
MTN_KEY is set in /etc/conf.d/monotone, then hostname is not invoked to generate a default MTN_KEY, and the bug is not reproduced
