Default Bug#622750: general: "shutdown -r" does not reboot

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?
