'/etc/rc.d/network stop': Always '[fail]' -- this one(!?)

I use Arch exclusively as a Workstation, so far.  I have always had the same result whether on a Laptop or Tower configuration(SCSI or IDE), rc.d/network stop [fail] during shutdown.  Is this normal?  Is there a context in which the script would not [fail]?

Here is the actual output:

# /etc/rc.d/network stop

| Stopping Network                                                                                                                                               [busy] cat: /etc/dhcpc/dhcpcd-eth0.pid: No such file or directory
Usage:
  kill pid ...              Send SIGTERM to every process listed.
  kill signal pid ...       Send a signal to every process listed.
  kill -s signal pid ...    Send a signal to every process listed.
  kill -l                   List all signal names.
  kill -L                   List all signal names in a nice table.
  kill -l signal            Convert between signal numbers and names.
                                                                                                                                                                 [fail]

Thanx.

Re: '/etc/rc.d/network stop': Always '[fail]' -- this one(!?)

Hmmm... I don't have any systems set up to use dhcp right now... you'll have to check /etc/dhcpc to tell me if there are any .pid files in there (when the system is running).  Also, is there a dhcp .pid file in /var/run?  This may be a bug in the network scripts...

I've been using dhcp ever since 0.4(dragon) and it has always done this(!).

Re: '/etc/rc.d/network stop': Always '[fail]' -- this one(!?)

Is dhcpcd running?  There should be a .pid that it creates stored somewhere... think you could find it?

Re: '/etc/rc.d/network stop': Always '[fail]' -- this one(!?)

maybe this is interessting for you:

i had some months ago the same problem ... but it is not (directly) a arch-related problem:

if you have your laptop connected to a LAN that has a dhcp-server that gives you back "infinite release time" (this means the IP you get is valid for infinite time), then dhcpcd will shut down after setting IP correctly ... this leads while shutdowning that if you stop the network you have the problem with shuting down dhcpcd --- because it is shutted down at startup (just after configuring your IP and gateway)

also some DSL-routers have in their dhcps "infinite release time" as default or not changable :-(

this error is not that important ... if you worry getting [failed], then edit the rc.d/network script (remove this line) --- this is not really functional, but easy done and then you do not longer get [failed] :-)


The impossible missions are the only ones which succeed.

Re: '/etc/rc.d/network stop': Always '[fail]' -- this one(!?)

Or another option (not sure what happens when dhcpcd isn't running... which seems to be the problem in this case) is to change the line

/bin/kill `cat /etc/dhcpc/dhcpcd-${1}.pid`

to

dhcpcd -k

Re: '/etc/rc.d/network stop': Always '[fail]' -- this one(!?)

Ok, I think we've got it!  Lease times from my SMC Barricade 7004AWBR may be too long:

# find / -iname '*.pid'

/var/run/klogd.pid
/var/run/syslogd.pid
/var/run/crond.pid
/var/run/portmap.pid
/var/run/inetd.pid
/var/run/cardmgr.pid
/var/run/xdm.pid

#


# cat /etc/dhcpc/dhcpcd-eth0.info

IPADDR=192.168.2.16
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
NETWORK=192.168.2.0

GATEWAY=192.168.2.1

INTERFACE='eth0'
CLASSID='Linux 2.4.22-ck2 i686'
CLIENTID=08:00:46:0A:F6:6D

#


So, .... Is there a better way to write the network script to account for this and short-lease times, both?  If so, I would be glad to submit a bug-report for future versions.

Thanx, again for your insights.

Re: '/etc/rc.d/network stop': Always '[fail]' -- this one(!?)

I think that using

dhcpcd -k ${1}

is more graceful anyway.  Try that in your /etc/rc.d/network replacing that kill line.
