System does not shutdown properly
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:53:46 EDT
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
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Shutdown from X login screen
on i686 gBox: the system gets to the 'power down' message, but does not
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
On the i686 (ATX) gBox, shutdown completely, turn power off
On the i686 (AT) system, shutdown as far as 'power down' message.
Both systems shut down properly with the earlier kernel versions.
