Init 0 does not shutdown the server on its own


I have upgraded the kernel on my Red Hat 7.3 server from "2.4.18-3smp" to "2.4.18-5smp". The server has a dual Xeon based motherboard with a RocketRAID133 controller. When I was running "2.4.18-3smp" kernel I could issue "init 0" to shutdown the server and it would shutdown on its own. In "2.4.18-5smp" kernel whenever I issue "init 0" I have to manually shutdown the server. Would any of you have any suggestions for me to get over this deficiency?

Thanks in advance for any help

Thanks for taking time to read through and make a suggestion. I tried "shutdown -h now" and its behavior is no different from "init 0". I still have to mnually shutdown the server after I issued the command. I am open to other suggestions.

Have you compiled the kernel? Probably you need the correct APM (advanced power management) option to be compiled in.

The kernel I am using "2.4.18-5smp" is from an RPM. I have not recompiled the kernel. I just had to drop in the driver for RAID and recreate the "initrd" using the "mkinitrd" command. Could you please elaborate on "APM"? I did not follow it fully.

Thanks for your help.

Well, I've dug a little bit, so I am currently not sure if it is a matter of PM or APM option.
Anyway I am sure it is a matter of kernel compiling options. If you have got a binary kernel - it could be compiled in any way.
Regarding your ask "Could you please elaborate on "APM" - what can be added more? If you not familiar with kernel compiling - it is a high time to do it :) During setting the options you'll find nice help and a lot of docs as well which comes with the kernel sources.
