Description Igor 2000-10-25 09:21:54 UTC
Don't boot after reboot, shutdown -r, init 6 halt only.
My system is:
DEC PC 5510 BIOS 1.11 PhoenixBIOS 4.0 Release 6.0

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2000-11-07 20:15:54 UTC
Sounds like a bad interaction with your BIOS.

What happens if you boot with 'reboot=bios' or 'reboot=warm'?

Comment 2 Igor 2000-11-08 06:27:49 UTC
The same happens in any case: reboot=h,c or h,w or b,c or b,w. RH6.2 works well.

Comment 3 Igor 2000-11-13 09:19:05 UTC
Reboot is normal with kernel from RH6.2.
Not rebooting with both new kernels 2.4 from RH7.0 too.

Comment 4 Need Real Name 2000-11-17 21:53:55 UTC
I am having the same problem. We have a bunch of HP Brio's in production as 
WWW, DNS and MAIL servers. They all were fine w V6.2 but now will not reboot.

Tried all the various reboot= combos.

Spoke to RH Support and they told me it's a bug.

When can we expect a fix?

Comment 5 Igor 2002-12-03 07:56:44 UTC
RH 8.0 kernel 2.4.18-14 reboots correctly.

Comment 6 Michael K. Johnson 2002-12-03 20:18:05 UTC
Thanks for the update!
