Description nzanella 1999-10-31 03:33:19 UTC
Power off on shutdown does not work with
Red Hat 5.2 and kernel 2.2.12 and later
because Sys V Init's halt is old.
To fix this please provide an rpm
with a more up to date version of
SysVinit's halt.

Thanks,

Neil

The halt that shipped with SysVinit in 5.2 supports
poweroff with the -p option.
