I'm installing a new Fedora 24 system, and just for "fun", I ran this command:
systemctl -t service|grep 'loaded active running'| perl -anle 'print "systemctl stop $F; systemctl disable $F"' | sh
which attempts to turn off and disable all services.
'auditd' refuses to stop with an error, but all other services stop fine.
I also disabled "systemd-udevd-kernel.socket" and "systemd-udevd-control.socket" because the command above warned me that these sockets could restart systemd-udevd.
shutdown -r, the boot process gets as far as "Starting Switch
Root..." and hangs. In particular:
The cursor below this message starts blinking at a normal rate, but then turns to flickering extremely rapidly.
Normally, when I screw things up like this, I get a dracut timeout with a minimal shell that lets me fix things. This time, no dracut timeout.
I strongly suspect that disabling "system-udevd" was a seriously bad idea. Is there any way I can fix this without reinstalling?
And, if so, which services should I absolutely avoid disabling?
