That is not the point, I think it is time to give up with this lot because I am wasting my time.
I posted what you asked for. How is that wasting your time?
I did not ask you, I asked pcmanbob.
The point is not the extract from the man pages, the point is Wheezy.
NewtownGal hijacked a thread and complains that shutdown command on a Pi Zero has been changed between Wheezy and Stretch, now a shutdown "delay" with 10 seconds using -t is not available because command has been changed. The user states "I ** need ** a shutdown that starts in 10 seconds". Historic man page extract (I do not have HW for Wheezy) shows that -t refers to init and runlevel sending warning and kill signal. This does not apply to systemd as implemented in Stretch so that -t is obsolete. pcmanbob wrote "I stated the change form time in seconds to time in minutes actually took place in Jessie which is why I posted the extract from the shutdown man in Jessie and is actually the same in stretch because it has not changed since Jessie" (*), ignoring that the original complaint involves a change from Wheezy to Stretch while Jessie is never mentioned. (that is why I asked for Wheezy!). You supplied the extract from Wheezy which shows that the NewtownGal is correct that the command has been changed.
At this point a number of questions for NewtonGal
- Why is a 10 second delay after entering shutdown required ? Can it be that this is not needed with systemd ?
- Why is -t as shutdown option needed ? could this be hard coded in some application ?
- What happened here: "My point is that the shutdown command stopped working, on a Pi Zero no less, which is the crux of this posting.", did shutdown fail or was it because of -t causing the command to be rejected?
NetownGal asks: "Is there a listing of all such changes so I don't have to discover them ???" seems to indicate that reading of release notes is a lost art.
(*) This is not correct, -t
have different purposes, -t
