slackware freezes when I go halt


Hi,


I use Slackware 10.0, KDE 3.3.0, and kernel 2.4.26

Often when I go reboot or halt, in terminal, the system freezes. It is also freezes when I'm using KDE but thats no that often as when I go reboot or halt the computer.

When I restart, it replays the transactions on /dev/hda9, which is my /root, is is of type reiserfs.
It used to be ext2, and everytime I used to startup my computer,
/dev/hda9 contains an invalid file consistency.

I formatted it, but yet it also contains problems with reiserfs. What should I do about /dev/hda9, and is it related to the freezing?

My instinct says that it may be related to ACPI. Try passing acpi=off at boot and see if you can get the thing to despool the drives and display "power down" on halt.

Also, does it hang on restart too or just on halt?

are you loading the apm module? try /sbin/modprobe apm and then see if the shutdown or reboot freezes. if this works, then uncomment the same line in /etc/rc.d/rc.modules.

Hmm...
Interesting,

I don't have ACPI, rather APM is enabled.
How can I enable ACPI?

Code:
chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.acpid
That should do it, assuming that you have the proper acpi configuration for your kernel.
