Are there any messages on the screen or in the logs when the system
powers down?

Comment 3 François Kooman 2007-05-01 12:14:39 EDT
No, no messages at all on the screen. And I guess nothing written to logfile,
because it's still in initrd phase? And if not, syslogd/klogd is not started at
that moment. It's just before rhgb would show...
Comment 4 François Kooman 2007-05-13 05:19:15 EDT
Is there a way to debug this? I tried booting with acpi=off apic=no but it
doesn't help. Maybe with a serial console? Or enabling udev debug info? Maybe
it's more obvious when one would look at the changes between the FC6 release
kernel and the first FC6 errata kernel?
Comment 5 François Kooman 2007-05-18 11:49:36 EDT
Somehow, this seems to be fixed after the last few kernel updates. I didn't
really notice anything that could have fixed it, but whatever... If I encounter
it again,  I'll report back here.
