When I shutdown, Ubuntu hangs at that shutting-down screen. The one with five dots under the Ubuntu logo that change color to show you it's thinking.
There was an article I followed on adding a script to the startup process. That was one of the last system changes I was doing before this happened.
Here's the article:
When I ran the "update-rc.d FOO defaults" command, it seemed to work, but I got an error. I REALLY wish I would have written that error down.
At that shut-down screen, is there a way to switch to a terminal to see what process is holding up the shutdown? That might be the way to go about it.
I'm using 10.04 LTS Ubuntu.
