/dev Rebuilt During Boot?
Authored by: dsauve on Nov 14, '01 07:36:55PM

This morning I rebooted remotely using 'shutdown' and one of my partitions didn't mount. This is the first time I saw this happen. I did a 2nd shutdown and all the mounts booted up fine. I wonder if 'shutdown' is the culprit -- if the reboot process isn't the same as a reboot after selecting Restart from the apple menu.

I only question the command because I noticed that my Display settings are screwed up after a 'shutdown' -- implying that something isn't correctly loaded -- and it requires a clean reboot to get the Displays to show the correct refresh rates, etc.

Point is, the niload trick isn't perfect.

If /sbin/shutdown is the culprit, then we're back to the "OS X's automounter does funny things with /dev" line again. Maybe someone who follows the Darwin groups, has some free time, and wouldn't mind could float the question and report back...?
