Red Hat shutdown problem


As a linux newbie I have installed Red Hat ver8 and at shutdown I do not get a powerdown automatically or a notice to switch off. What I get is the message: "Code: Bad EIP value". I have now installed Red Hat ver9 but still have the same problem (was just hoping it would correct the problem!).
Would appreciate help with this.
Regards
Basil Clements

Is the APM service running? What do the following commands say :

"/sbin/chkconfig --list |grep -i apm"

"dmesg |grep -i apm"

Hi cropcircle
First command says:
" grep: invalid max count"

Second command says:
"apm: BIOS version 1.2 Flags 0x07 (Driver version 1.16)"

What happens if you boot Red Hat Linux 9 (by appending some options to the Linux kernel in the GRUB boot menu) with the following options :

(see :
http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/l...-bootopts.html
)

apm=allow_ints

This command changes how the suspend service is handled (and may be necessary for some laptops).


apm=off

This command disables APM (Advanced Power Management). It useful because some BIOSes have buggy power management (APM) and tend to crash.


apm=power_off

This command makes Red Hat Linux shutdown (power off) the system by default. It is useful for SMP systems that do not shutdown by default.


apm=realmode_power_off

Some BIOSes crash when trying to shutdown (power off) the machine. This command changes the method of how this is done from the Windows NT way to the Windows 95 way.

Have entered the Options suggested in the boot menu but still get " Code: Bad EIP value" at end of shutdown.
