Shutdown problems with Red Hat 7.2
It has been a couple of years since I used unix and I am new to linux. I have recently installed Red Hat 7.2 with kernel verion 2.4.7-10. I have a couple of problems, but I will start with the most important.
I have tried many different methods of shutting down. I have used the shutdown command, the halt command, the init command, etc. and all produce the same results. The X server seems to shutdown okay, but then my screen goes blank and the power indicator on my monitor just starts blinking. I have waited for up to an hour for something to happen but nothing. I have to hold in my power button for 5 seconds in order to shut off the computer.
When ever I reboot into linux I always get a message saying that it was shutdown improperly and it recovers lost inodes and such. This has been going on for a couple of weeks and I know that one of these days it will not boot up. Thanks for your help!!
