Unhappy INIT: No more process left in this runlevel


Dear all, Iam new to this forum, and quite new to Linux OS. I am having a problem when doing a shutdown -g0 -y on RHE Linux AS 3.
The error message "INIT: no more process let in this run level" and system hangs there.

Please your help will be greatly apreciated.


Regards..


Robs

Are you using a Sata hard drive?

It almost seems as if there is something wrong with udev.

could ya post your /etc/fstab? and are you using and custom udev rules?

As a newbie, I am not sure where swap should be as the server being configured by an external service provider. where should it be?
Any solutions, please.

Here's my /etc/fstab

I normally have my Swap on my main hd,having it on a removable source kinda defeats the purpse

Code:
# <file system>        <dir>         <type>    <options>          <dump> <pass>
none                   /dev/pts      devpts    defaults            0      0
none                   /dev/shm      tmpfs     defaults            0      0
tmpfs                  /tmp          tmpfs     defaults            0      0
usbfs                  /proc/bus/usb usbfs  defaults            0      0

/dev/hdc    /mnt/cdrom   udf,iso9660   user,defaults,noauto  	 0   0
/dev/hda2 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hda4 / reiserfs defaults 0 0
/dev/hda3 /home reiserfs defaults 0 0 
/dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1 vfat user,defaults,noauto 0 0
/dev/hda1 /mnt/hda1 reiserfs user,defaults,rw 0 0
/dev/sda2 /mnt/ipod vfat user,defaults,noauto,rw  0 0
You'll notice my swap is set to /dev/hda2. it's on my main drive.

It just seems that udev is having issues unmounting the swap from the removable source. Did you install the distro, or did someone do it for you?
