Description of Problem:
reboot hangs after 'Syncing hardware clock to system time'
Steps to Reproduce:
normal reboot :)
This is HP Kayak HU800. With kernel package kernel-2.4.2-2 everything works
but with kernel-2.4.3-12 reboot procedure hangs in .../init.d/halt with
Syncing hardware clock to system time
displayed last. No additional kernel reconfiguration was made after RH7.1
Are you using reiserfs ?
Partitions are _only_ ext2 :
64M /boot, 1G /, 1G swap, 13G extended
4G /usr, 4G /var, the rest /home
This might be a powermanagement issue. Could you try booting with
"noapm" typed on the lilo prompt as kernel parameter (eg "linux noapm")
to see if that works around the problem ?
Yep, works with 'noapm' .
I'll try to compile vanilla 2.4.6 later .. When I get time I'll experiment
with BIOS options too ..
