Re: repeatable "could not determine runlevel" error on "halt"

Report it to Miquel van Smoorenberg <miquels@cistron.nl> . Also,
the entire purpose of communicating the run level in a named pipe
was to avoid the problem we had when we could not write it into
a file in /etc/ because root was mounted read-only. However, the
1.3.59 kernel (and probably others) will not allow you to open
a named pipe for write if it is on a filesystem mounted for read
only. I think this is a kernel bug because the pipe buffer lives
in RAM, not in the filesystem.
