I am facing a strange problem since upgrading to 12.1 from 12.0 . Earlier when I would do a halt, it would power off the PC. But after I upgraded, it has stopped doing that. It simply stops at 'System had been halted' . So far I have tried 'modprobe apm' ( and verified using lsmod that it is actually loaded ) , shutdown -h and poweroff - but nothing has worked for me so far
Any clues as to what I might be missing ? - thanks
I have the same Problem, but my Bios is only from 2007 ? I have a asrock Mainboard with a crossfire chipset socket AM2 , so I think this fix shouldn't apply on my pc...
Anyway, I will try it later and then report back
