Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 3611
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:50 EDT
I have a Pentium II, intel 233mhz
Viper 330 4mb AGP video card,
Seagate Medallist Pro 2.5gb IDE HDD
Iomega Zip SCSI Insider
Yamaha 4260t SCSI CDRW
Adaptec 2940UW SCSI card
NEC Multisync 3D monitor
Am running Redhat 5.2 on hda1 (boot from floppy) no
Redhat 6.0 runs on hda6
Swap is hda5, used by both distro's.
Multi boot from Lilo.
PROBLEM:- when shutting down Redhat 6.0, after either
booting from Lilo or from floppy, shutdown gets to "system
is halted" ok, but then says "stopping all md devices" and
scrolls junk on screen until I hit the Powerioff switch.
I know from Usenet that there are at least 2 other persons
with this problem using Redhat 6.0, and at least 3 persons
with similar problems using Mandrake 6.0
I'm a relative Newbie, but have had no problems with Redhat
5.2. Have installed Redhat 6.0 twice to date - first time
without Gnome but with KDE, second time with Gnome and KDE.
what happens if you change the last line of /etc/rc.d/init.d/halt
eval $command -i -d -p
eval $command -i -d
Red Hat 6.0 ships with 2.2.5-15 kernels with APM enabled by default.
This works fine with most APM compliant BIOS's. It is possible that
the APM features of your motherboard are not fully compliant and you
get the junk when the kernel is trying to tell the motherboard to turn
off after everything else is stopped. The best way to fix this is to
recompile your kernel with the "power off on shutdown" disabled. If
this doesnt work then you can reopen the bug.
