SuSE shutdown problem


Hi

I am runnig SuSE 9 Pro at the mo and sometimes I shutdown it doesn't do it cleanly. It says it is shutting down kdm and suddenly it just crashes and reboots. I am now using kde 3.1 and kernel 2.6.6. Does anyone know what is wrong with my computer? - and if you need any info just ask. I don;'t know what to put here for a problem like this.

thanks

If you are running suse 9.0 AND kernel 2.6.x, you should have updated the kernel manually, cause 9.0 runs 2.4.x series by default. Updating the kernel can be troublesome, sometimes. I always prefer to wait for the distro to upgrade.

Anyway, try to create a new user and login to it. If you can shutdown as new user cleanly, the problem is inside some of your .files from your /home.

Yeah I compiled the kernel myself and everything is wroking fine. Its just that every now and then my user account decides that it doesn't want to shut the kdm service down. I don't really know what is wrong. I will check my .files. or i might consider using sarge or fedora

If you compiled the kernel alone, what the heck are you doing in the newb forum??? He he..

Hey, before you switch off from suse, try to create a new user and check if the problem persists. I tried to upgrade kde with a ported apt-get-to-suse and screwed the whole stuff badly. Reinstalled everything from scratch.
Or you can dl suse 9.1 which installs kernel 2.6.5 and kde 3.2 by default.
