Description Danny Engelbarts 2001-02-17 09:28:44 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0)

When trying to reboot with the "shutdown -r 0" command the system shuts 
down and never comes up again, i have to unplug the system to get it 
running again!

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. shutdown -r 0 on the command line

Actual Results:  The system shuts down normally, at initial system boot 
phase nothing happens, Windows 2000 is also installed and does not show 
this behaviour (therefore i think it's not hardware related)

Expected Results:  Startup of the system

I want to emphasize that i physically have to unplug the system, IT WILL 
something goes terribly wrong here!

We (Red Hat) should really try to resolve this before next release.
Comment 2 Danny Engelbarts 2001-02-18 08:32:40 EST

I've been testing a bit further, i took out everything but the video card and 
the Harddisk and replaced the parts one by one in the following order;

SCSI Interface + CDROM Writer
LAN interface
ISDN Interface

Only after adding the last (ISDN Interface) the problem is reproducible.
More information on this thingy can be found at;

If i can do anything to help please contact me!

Thanks for tracking this down as far as that card.  I do not know
if we even have any such cards in any of our offices that could
be used for testing at this point.

Bug 26444 seems relevant, could you check the suggestions I mentioned there ?
