Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 20072
shutdown command not recognized
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
No existing bugs of this nature found. I just installed Redhat 7.0 on a
new Compaq Proliant 5500 as a server. It seemed to function properly,
until I tried to shut it down. It simply refuses to accept the command.
shutdown -h now
Memory 1.25 Gig
2 18.2 ultra SCSI hard drives
2 500MHz Xeon processors
Still trying to find out what the other four CDs are for. Installation
finished without calling for them.
Please see if the test package of usermode-1.37-1 in
http://people.redhat.com/nalin/test/ fixes this for you. Thanks!
