Services skipped at runlevel 0: smbfs


This is the last line I see when I select 'turn off computer' from Kde. I went into the control panel and tried /sbin/halt and /sbin/poweroff and /sbin/shutdown and each of them goes through the motion of shutting down but exits to a text screen and the last item after 'sending all processes kill signal' is "Services skipped at runlevel 0: smbfs" but its in yellow.

Any ideas??

'"Services skipped at runlevel 0: smbfs" but its in yellow.'

This probably means that SuSE installed the scripts to start and stop smbfs but did not actually install the rest of the smbfs support. If you do not use smbfs then I suggest that you just live with it.

If you do use smbfs then I suggest that you chase the problem a little. Are you using smbs and does it work OK except for the shutdown message?

I guess I should have included the question -- What is smbfs and can I live without it??

Also, I was wondering if that woud have something to do with why my comp won't turnoff when I select Turnoff Computer. Instead it goes to the text screen and shows all the shutdown processes but doesn't shut off. When I boot into WinXP Pro it shuts off but not in Linux.

well, you've been living without smbfs so far, haven't you
you can google for an explanation of what it is. I suspect you don't need it.
the shutdown thing is probably something else -a lot of people have that problem. look around in the forum if there is a solution to it.

cheers

"What is smbfs and can I live without it?"

I think that smbfs is the protocol networked Windows computers use to talk to each other. If your Linux box is not on a network with some Windows boxes then you do not need it.

"I was wondering if that woud have something to do with why my comp won't turnoff when I select Turnoff Computer."

Probably. I have the same problem in that I have unused processes which do not start or shut down and SuSE does not turn off my computer either. I have simply lived with it.
