    Question Reboot/shutdown problem: net.eth0 waiting for localmount (50 seconds)


    Hello,

    When I reboot gentoo I get the following message and I have to wait 50 seconds until it reboots/shuts down:

    Code:
    * Bringing down interface lo 
     *   Removing addresses 
     * net.eth0: waiting for localmount (50 seconds) 
     * net.eth0: waiting for localmount (41 seconds) 
     * net.eth0: waiting for localmount (32 seconds) 
     * net.eth0: waiting for localmount (23 seconds) 
     * net.eth0: waiting for localmount (14 seconds) 
     * net.eth0: waiting for localmount (5 seconds) 
     * Bringing down interface eth0
    I tried to find some answers on google but there was nothing useful whatsoever.

    Not sure if this is related, but this is the first line of my rc.log:
    Code:
    * ERROR: cannot start net.eth0 as fsck would not start
    EDIT: This fixes it: /etc/init.d/net.eth0 stop
    However, having to do that every time before shutting down/rebooting is slightly annoying.

    Is there any other way I could fix this?

    Try removing netmount from your init scripts,

    Code:
    rc-update del netmount default
    You will need root privileges, and this doesn't actually delete the script, it just tells rc not to run it on start up.
