I am having the same problem with a Dell Optiplex GXip , FC6 and
2.6.18-1-27198-fc6 as well as the same version of the Xen kernel. The machine
goes through the usual mesages of the screen up to an including the System
halted message but the power does not turn off. I have used this same nacine for
FC2, FC3, FC4, and FC5 and this has not happened before.
Running shutdown -h nos causes the same result.
I am having a similar problem with FC7 and all its updates as well as now FC 8 test 3 on an Intel iMac
24" (late 2006 model, white, with the nvidia gpu) under Parallels Desktop 3.0. Shutting down a virtual
fedora core results in a black screen with a "System halted" last line. It does not power off. However
filesystem shutdown worked, alle services are turned off, md's halted etc.
What kind of info do you need?
This message is a reminder that Fedora 7 is nearing the end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 7. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '7'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 7's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 7 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. If possible, it is recommended that you try the newest available Fedora distribution to see if your bug still exists.
Please read the Release Notes for the newest Fedora distribution to make sure it will meet your needs:
The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Fedora 7 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on June 13, 2008.
Fedora 7 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not
receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we
are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version
of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
