oops on poweroff
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:52 EDT
when i give --shutdown -h now-- after the power down
message,it shows me a memory dump and the error message--
unable to handle kernels paging request at virtual address
my configuration is:
soyo sy-5ehm with bios revision eh-1ca1
64mb dimm 100mhz
diamond viper 550 16mb pci
2.5 western digital hdd
Does the EIP of the oops start with 0010 or 0050?

When I try shutdown -h 0, after stopping all md devices, the
machine dumps a full screen of registers/stack and hangs,
without turning off the power.

I also get this bug with my K6-III/400 and Soyo motherboard. I have posted a
screenshot showing the stack dump etc. at
Hope this help.

Another report of this bug (though for Red Hat Linux 6.1), removing '-p' from
the halt script did not help.
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA586AX F2
CPU: AMD K6-3/400
BIOS: Award 4.51PG
Video card: Diamond Viper AGP V550 8MB 1.95e4904
Hard drive: Western Digital 20 Gb 7200 RPM EIDE WD205BA
Network card: Intel Etherexpress Pro+ pci 10/100
Customer shuts down with 'shutdown -h now'. Process hangs at 'Power Down' output
line. The only way out is to Ctrl+Alt+Del, which prints "Stopping all md
devices" then reboots.
Turned off all APM features in BIOS, booted with apm=off as boot parameter.
Still same behavior.

I got this error also, that was because i has both AT and ATX power support on
the motherboard. But the motherboard was connected to the Powersupply with a AT
connector. When the machine tried to turn it self off.. then this error appeard.
Could this be some of yours problem?
This is, in its roots, a bios problem.
