Question NAS mounts with fstab but hangs on shutdown


I am running Lenny with KDE4.2 on my home desktop and have a Buffalo Linkstation on the network. It is mounted during boot with the following in fstab:

//192.168.1.101/share /home/wlz/smb4k/ cifs username=user1,password=password1,auto,uid=wlz,gid=users 0 0

Mounting appears fine and drive is accessed without problems except on shutdown it appears to hang for a long while and then reports something to the effect "cifs is unresponsive", waits a bit longer and then eventually shuts down completely.

This desktop is setup to dual boot with Mepis 8.0 which uses the same line in fstab but shuts down quickily and normally.

Any suggestions?

Hi, welcome to LQ!

I'd be checking whether the network is torn down before the devices
get unmounted in Lenny ....


Cheers,
Tink

Could be as the delay is very near the end of shutdown sequence and when sequence resumes only 15-20 lines flash by.

How can I determine for sure and then how to change?

This is of course more an irritant than a real problem but I like to see thing operating properly.

If I open a terminal and unmount the share, then shutdown, the shutdown is quick and orderly.

regards,

One typically is able to control the sequence in the shutdown process by re-numbering the shutdown scripts. Generically written, here's a description of the startup/shutdown scripts for Debian:

Just peeking around and it looks like other people are having the same fun as you are:
