Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 806415
the system hangs at shutdown/reboot on fedora 16
Last modified: 2012-11-14 10:22:57 EST
Description of problem:
On fedora 16, the system hangs at shutdown/reboot.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. shutdown / reboot / poweroff / init 0
The system freezes at very last step of corresponding sequence. The ultimate displayed message can be Shutting down / Rebooting / Powering Off.
The power is not effectively switched off, nor any reboot happens, depending of the requested sequence.
The system should power off or reboot depending of the requested sequence.
Two workarounds have been found which solve the problem:
1) Setting acpi=off in kernel options and removing iscsi and iscsid services. This is not acceptable since hyperthreading is desactivated in this way.
2) Removing the e1000 gigabit ethernet module before shutdown/reboot (adding a custom runonshutdown.service) solves this issue.
Using HP Probook 6560b with cinnamon 1.4.0-5. After install new kernel the first shutdown / reeboot it works, the other no, in both kernel 3.4.2-1 or 3.1.0-7.
In booting no logo, but at first strange character on video, next all works fine until nest reboot/shutdown.
