Description Jim Cornette 2005-07-06 07:07:08 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050513 Fedora/1.7.8-2

Description of problem:
When trying to shutdown my computer, it failed to poweroff. With kernel-2.6.12-1.1411_FC5 my computer would not even boot. The last bootable kernel version and version that successfully shutdown was kernel-2.6.12-1.1400_FC5

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot kernel
2. use system
3. poweroff

Actual Results:  Booting worked for the latest version. The previous version hung while booting. The version before seemed to work acceptably.

Expected Results:  The earlier version should have booted. This version should have shutdown as well.

Additional info:

This problem is a bit better than the problem experienced with the latest FC4 version which would not boot either. The acpi poweroff problem is too familiar and was a problem seen during FC3 revisited.

Kernel startup log
Comment 2 Jim Cornette 2005-07-06 22:36:02 EDT
Both the smp and the single processor kernels failed to poweroff. Included is
dmesg from the last kernel that would power down properly.

kernel-2.6.12-1.1400_FC5  dmesg

Both kernel-2.6.12-1.1421_FC5 and kernel-smp-2.6.12-1.1421_FC5 still fail to
power down properly.

Comment 6 Martin 2005-07-12 13:12:51 EDT
the last messages after 'shutdown -h now' with kernel-2.6.12-1.1426_FC5 are:

'unmounting file systems:
Halting system ...
md: stopping all md devices.
md: md0 switched to read-only mode.'

can someone tell me, where i can get the kernel-2.6.12-1.1400_FC5
Comment 7 Jim Cornette 2005-07-14 18:57:11 EDT
You might try a kernel from FC4 and boot with it until FC5 gets a working kernel
again. I have 2.6.12-1.1390_FC4 installed and it works decent. Development
appears to have 1432 in the repository. I have not tried it yet though.
Keep the FC4 kernel and check the devel repo to see if one comes pout that works
Use the --oldpackage option for rpm to *install* the older kernel version. Read
man rpm to see the options for rpm.
Comment 8 Martin 2005-07-16 09:01:48 EDT
problem still exists with kernel-2.6.12-1.1433_FC5.i686.rpm
Comment 9 Jim Cornette 2005-07-17 21:56:50 EDT
kernel-2.6.12-1.1434_FC5 shuts down properly and seems to work quicker than
1400. (Not timed, but seems more responsive.)
Comment 10 Martin 2005-08-03 13:04:08 EDT
kernel-2.6.12-1.1446_FC5 seems to print more messages, but power off fails again:

Halting system ...
md: md0 switched to read-only mode.
ACPI: PCI interrupt for device 0000:02:01.0 disabled
ACPI: PCI interrupt for device 0000:00:1f.5 disabled

my  machine with the MSI Board.

Comment 15 Martin 2006-01-10 02:41:45 EST
a good day for peoples with the mSI MS-6758 (875P Neo) Board.
With kernel-2.6.15-1.1823_FC4.i686.rpm the problem doesn't longer exists.
'shutdown -h now' works for me.
