Rebooting problem


Hi all folks,

Version 5.2
new installation

On rebooting it hangs on
.....
syncing disks, buffers remaining ... 5 5

done
Uptime: 45m45s
Shutting down ACPI
Rebooting...
Keyboard reset did not work, attempting CPU shutdown.

I have to make a 'hard reboot' by pressing 'reset' key

Kindly advise is it the size of SWAP insufficient? If 'YES', kindly advise how to check it and increase its size.

TIA

B.R.

It doesn't look like it has anything to do with swap to me... but if you run BSD I have to ask the question, why do you have to reboot?

Hi

Tks for your response.

I was trying to solve GUI login at booting problem. After each editing made to /etc/ttys I need to reboot the PC to test it.

Besides 'shutdown -h now' also got problem. It popup requesting to hit any key to reboot. If I hit any key it won't reboot but came back to the same problem.
