Description nzanella 1999-10-30 23:33:19 EDT
Power off on shutdown does not work with
Red Hat 5.2 and kernel 2.2.12 and later
because Sys V Init's halt is old.
To fix this please provide an rpm
with a more up to date version of
SysVinit's halt.


Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-11-01 11:40:59 EST
The halt that shipped with SysVinit in 5.2 supports
poweroff with the -p option.
