shutdown scripts?


it used to be that when i issued a command to shutdown my machine, it shutdown. all the way. power off. now, after tinkering around with a new kernel and bootsplash themes, it doesn't. if i'm not running a bootsplash, or running one in verbose mode, where i can see the messages scrolling by on the screen when i shutdown, what i see is seemingly everything i've always seen, except that the machine doesn't actually shut down. i have to actually push the power button to complete the last step. i'd rather it just turn itself off when i told it to. what's going on here?

Sounds rather like you may have missed something useful, like ACPI (or equivalent) off of your kernel recompile...

Cheers,

yeah, i'm not sure if i messed something up in the kernel or if it's the bootsplash that's doing it. i don't remember when exactly it started.

the last two lines are:

power down: hda
shutdown.

typically it shuts down here. now it doesn't though.

hda is my hard drive.

Is you ACPID daemon up and running ? (check last messages in /var/log/acpid) - this is the usual way to handle power etc. under Sarge. If not, you could attempt to start it using
Code:
/etc/init.d/acpid start
- if this fails, then my guess is for the kernel.

Cheers,

yep. it's the kernel. at least i'm pretty sure it is. i vaguely remember removing some kind of power management support when i was selecting options when i built it. time for another compile.

Ah well, at least you didn't forget to include support for Ext2/3 filesystems, as I did a few years ago

Made it rather hard to reboot.

Cheers,
