Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 439280
shutdown does not show messages
Last modified: 2015-01-14 18:20:40 EST
Shutting down the computer used to show me information about the computer
shutting down (i.e. the info from the init.d stop scripts).
It doesn't any more, which defeats the point of the info from the init.d stop
Typing reboot from gnome-terminal doesn't seem to work either (logged in as root
in the gui....)
if you press ctrl-alt-fN where fN is f1 through f12 does it show up on any of
the vts? if so, which one?
VT7 on my machine (just pushing power button at kdm login screen) is where the
messages are displayed. Seems to get switched to VT1 after X gets killed. Is
this really a gdm issue? Seems like some other component needs to handle this.
upstart owns /sbin/shutdown which is what is getting run by acpid when the
power button is pressed.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Seeing this as well. Getting switched to a VT1 mingetty while shutdown messages
continue on VT7.
This bug appears to be a duplicate of bug 439699, no? Or vice-versa (looking at
the bug open-date).
