Description Sammy 2002-12-27 17:34:07 EST
Since I upgraded to latest rawhide kernels pp.11 and 2.4.20-2.2. 
Using shutdown system from kdm login screen, the system goes through 
normal shutdown and finally ends with "System halted" message. No errors 
and everything looks like before. 
When I hit the power off button on the Inspiron I get a bunch of cryptic 
messages which ends with oops Kernel panic! and something saying 
"trying to kill init". This is weird because everything is killed and shutdown 
already. Also, among the messages is a list of all the drivers that were 
loaded. Does this mean somehow the modules were not removed and 
the the System halted message is errenous? 
Only way I can than power off the system is to disconnect power cable 
and pull out the battery. 	If I then power on again the startup is normal 
i.e. no messages like "system was halted uncleanly" or something like that.

does passing "acpi=off" to the kernel commandline ("a" in grub, or the vmlinuz
line in /boot/grub/grub.conf) fix this ?
Comment 2 Sammy 2002-12-28 08:56:43 EST
Yes....I added acpi=off to the lilo append line and it fixed the problem. 
Comment 3 Sammy 2003-01-03 09:41:12 EST
A question about acpi=off. Does this affect the usb/hotplug devices, because since 
I have done this my digital camera is not recognized. I had only a few packages 
updated since than, none seem crucial to this problem.
