Description From 2007-02-22 19:58:45
It's suggested to disable rawdevices service by default; since these are
extremely rarely needed, maybe even worth splitting off from startup (not sure
on this, just checked CentOS 4.4: this script _does_ belong to initscripts)

This change should be enough, isn't it?
------- Comment #2 From 2007-02-23 22:51:11 -------
I don't know -- just disabled the whole thing, even back when I've dealt with
Oracle on ALM2.0 (they didn't need it too there).

...or mark this WONTFIX, and let's get done with it.

startup- -> sisyphus:

* Fri Aug 27 2010 Dmitry V. Levin <ldv@altlinux>
- Added dependence on /sbin/fsck (closes: #22410).
- init.d/rawdevices: turned off by default
  (by Michael Shigorin; closes: #10906).
- rc.sysinit:
  + Disable update of /etc/mtab when the latter is a symlink
    (by Alexey I. Froloff; closes: #23133).
  + No longer try to mount already mounted /proc and /sys
    (closes: #23660).
  + Disable USEMODULES when /sbin/modprobe is not available,
    thus removed hard dependence on module-init-tools
    (closes: #11033).
  + Refactored automatic reboot.
  + Added SELinux support
    (by Mikhail Efremov and me).
- init.d/halt:
  + Made halt action configurable, default remains unchanged
    (by Sergey Y. Afonin and me; closes: #10326).
  + Reworked unmounting of virtual filesystems so that /proc, /sys,
    /dev and any usbfs inside /dev are nor longer unmounted
    (closes: #11888, #22118).
