Description Peter Belew 2003-05-15 18:57:02 UTC
Description of problem:

  For my i686 system (registered with RH as 'zeus') - a gBox system -
  when the system is shut down it does not power off, though it does
  to all the way to the 'power off' message.  This is similar to bug
  # 81692, I believe.

  For my i586 system (originally registered as 'maxlimax') - K6 CPU -
  when powering off from the X login screen, This is an AT box with
  no program-controlled powerdown.

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

  2.4.20-13.8bigmem for i686

  also 2.4.20-13.8 for i586 - slightly different problem

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Shutdown from X login screen
Actual results:

 on i686 gBox: the system gets to the 'power down' message, but does not
 shut off.

 on i586 AMD K6 system, X does not completely shut down, console 1 screen
 just turns all blue. I can switch to console 2, login as root, and
 shutdown normally.

Expected results:

 On the i686 (ATX) gBox, shutdown completely, turn power off

 On the i686 (AT) system, shutdown as far as 'power down' message.

Additional info:

 Both systems shut down properly with the earlier kernel versions.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
