User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc3 Firefox/1.0.7
Description of problem:
I had this same problem in FC5 test 2 --the system will not shutdown by itself it allways requires a manual reset.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.6.15-1.1955_FC5smp - 1975_FC5smp
Steps to Reproduce:
3.shutdown -r now
Actual Results: All services are stopped then the system hangs at "nothing left to do" or something like that.
Expected Results: It should not require a manual reset which requires a recovery of all mounted partitions on the next boot!
dual celeron 500 - intel bx chipset - has functioned with every redhat/fedora release from RH 6.0 - fc3. --- I skipped fc4.
I'm seeing a similar thing. My box reboots OK, but when I use poweroff
(shutdown the system and switch off power) it hangs in "Power down." and I have
to press and hold the powerbutton for 3 seconds for the machine to switch off.
I reinstalled fc5t3 to a fresh partition and now the system shuts down fine.
