Hi All. Have linux open susse 10 on HP2133.


Bit new to this folks. Switch on the note book operating screen comes on the bios shows then asks for login then password. Didnt have a clue what to do after this but the pc starts when i run startx, then it boots up. Then it will not shutdown unless holding the power button. Thanks for your help

To shutdown on Linux:
Code:
sudo shutdown -P now

Hello,
Please give us some information, such as the size of the processor, the RAM, Hard Drive, etc. Also, do you still have Windows on a partition on the Hard Drive?
I presume that openSUSE 10 means 10.0. Please confirm.

OK, that's weird. This should work:
Code:
sudo poweroff

-h = halt

In post #2 , that should have been an uppercase -P
