reboot and shutdown problem


hi!

I do su root and do 'reboot' so the compy reboots, duh, and this is what I get in the konsole:

[root@www webmaster]# reboot

Broadcast message from root (pts/0) (Thu Oct 9 16:24:27 2003):

The system is going down for reboot NOW!
[zkmem](1.1)

but it doesn't reboot ! What should I try to do ? How can I reboot the computer ? my GUI doesn't have a menu where I can find the 'reboot' option, so the only way to do it is thru the konsole. Now, I know I can just unplug the power thing but that's not the point, besides that it'd mess my os.

How can I check the integrity of my os ??

Thanks !

What does
shutdown -r now
and
shutdown -h now
do? The same thing?

Or how about "halt"?

Looks like your system may have been infected with the zkmem rootkit, or at least a Google turned up this link. You should run chkrootkit and rkhunter on the machine. Is this machine used as a server or running any services available to the outside world?
