Red Hat 8.0 SMP / Poweroff Problems
Hi, I just installed RH 8.0, on a dual processor machine, and also on a single processor machine... When it boots up on the dual processor, I select the RH 8.0 SMP to run, and on the other machine, I just select the default(NOT smp).
When I do a 'poweroff' command on the dual processor, it says "shutting down all devices" and finally "powerdown", but the system just sits there, it doesn't go off..
When I do the same 'poweroff" on the single processor machine, it goes down completely, which is what I need.
I also tried loading the following module as root:
*But I get an error saying "cannot locate module apm"
I also tried this:
"apm=power_off" to the end of the SMP kernel line /etc/grub.conf, still no luck..
//**I noticed an error message during boot up that said something like:
APM Disabled in smp mode since it is unstable
APM not supported in kernel
