Description Jeff Layton 2009-05-05 12:38:29 EDT
My home workstation and laptop are both running F11. Both of them routinely hang when I click the shutdown button in GNOME to tell the machine to shut down. I get a note on one of the consoles saying that shutdown has been initiated, but nothing actually happens afterward.

Eventually, if I hit ctrl+alt+delete then the box will reboot and I can then hold down the power switch to power it down. Obviously though, I'd like it to shut down and power off on its own.

To clarify...

When I say that I get the message saying shutdown has been initiated I mean that I get a broadcast message from root saying that system is going down for halt now.

After that, all of the VC's stop responding so it's a little difficult to tell what's actually hung.

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2009-05-05 16:25:22 EDT
Please grab 8.95-1 from today's rawhide.
Comment 5 Jeff Layton 2009-05-05 17:57:46 EDT
That seems to work. Assuming that gets pushed into the repo soon, this can probably be closed.
Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2009-05-05 18:03:52 EDT
It should be in the rawhide released today. Marking this as a duplicate of an earlier report of the issue.
