Can't shut down the computer


I just re built the kernel, version 2.6.16.1, in order to run OSS, and everything was configured and compiled OK, but when I try to shut down the computer, the kernel gives some wierd messages (they look like memory addresses).
I tried shutting down using /sbin/init 0, and the same happens, but it continues shutting down and I get a 'segmentation fault' error, it umounts, and nothing happens from there.
When I turn off the power supply and turn the computer back on, I get 'filesystem NOT clean', but no data appears to have been lost (I suspect this is because of Reiserfs' journaling stuff).

I am running Zenwalk 2.4 and am about to install the latest kernel patch.

Any advice?

Can you please post the 'weird messages'? That might give us a better clue as to what's going on.

Here is what I saw after running reboot:

Hope you can make some sense of this, because I sure can't.

Is there more to this, listed in /var/log/messages or /var/log/kern.log ? I suspect your kernel is crashing.

The file is too large to post. Is there a way to link to it? Are you looking for something specific in it?

I just want the part of it that contains the stuff from your earlier post, and some context around it. If it's not there, post the part that's from the date and time when you were trying to reboot.

I agree that they look like addresses.

I had same sort of error messages. The problem I faced was memory failure (I had 2 sticks of that one had problem). I dont know to what extent it makes sense to your current scenario but do try changing or swapping memory stick.
