Description of problem:

When NetworkManager is enabled and I use a cardbus wireless adapter, when shutting down the NetworkManager service won't die and the system cannot halt.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot up - doesn't matter if enabling NetworkManager service after reaching init 5
2. Plug in wireless adapter - GNOME keyring prompt appears, wireless network then connects
3. Once connected, attemp to shutdown system
Actual results:
NetworkManager fails to terminate

Expected results:
NetworkManager should terminate on shutdown

Any chance you can grab some logs from this, or switch to the VT on which shutdown messages are displayed?

Also, does this still happen with RHEL 5.4 kernel updates?
Comment 2 Steve Dowe 2009-11-17 17:29:16 EST
I'll have a look at the shutdown messages when I shutdown later tonight.

Funny that you mention the 5.4 kernels though - I've not had this issue since my laptop was updated to 5.4.

Will come back with more info.

It's likely this is fixed in RHEL6; as we don't have the requested info, closing.  Thanks!
