Mandrake 8.1 hangs on shutdown


Disclaimer: I'm a Linux . Installed it (Mandrake 8.1) for first time (and a 2nd time ) last week.

Anyway, my question: on shutdown linux always hangs. At first it was at eth1 (I had some issues with that card which are fixed now, and I reinstalled completely afterwards), now it hangs just a little later, at my USB printer.

Any ideas what can cause this and how I can fix it? I don't have the exact messages at hand, let me know if you need it.

uhh

hey chief, i use the exact same distro...

i was having the same problem but had to do more with my alcatel speedtouch dsl modem (ewww)... i am searching the web far and wide for solutions for this problem with linux's not-so-ready usb (doesnt mean its still not a great OS :-)) and will let yu know what i find...

i have discovered how to take care of my problem but i was planning on getting a new printer and using the usb connection with it.

This is what I dug up: http://www.mandrakeuser.org/mub/view...4375&forum=8&0 .

The fix:
Code:
1. Log in as root. 
2. Open a terminal. 
3. Type gedit /etc/modules.conf 
4. Change the line 

"alias usb-interface usb-uhci" to 
"alias usb-interface uhci". 

5. Save the file and reboot.
Apparently it's a known issue with USB in Mandrake and I'm going to try to suggested fix tonight. I have an Alcatel Speedtouch as well btw, but I don't think it's related since I have the ethernet, not USB, version.

a confirmation and backup for monster...

no doubt... the problems i was having, slow browsing and hung up shutdown were all fixed by this edit in /etc/modules.conf-- i was coming to this thread to tell everyone concerned with usb devices the good news!
