Description Michal Jaegermann 2003-06-17 21:23:35 EDT
Description of problem:

As in "Summary".  Where I tried (Tyan) effects are the same for
UP and SMP kernels.  A message "Power off" shows up and a box is
still powered up.  Playing with APM option does not have, not
surprisingly, any effect

I realize that one needs working ACPI and the following shows up
during a boot:

acpi: RSDP found at address 00000100000f4680
acpi: RSDP rev: 0 oem: ACPIAM
acpi: Init failed.

OTOH this is doable as after a substitution a kernel from SuSE
the same box does power down after 'halt -p' without any other changes
in a system.  An ACPI version is clearly different.

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
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
