I have a single related problem:
The shutdown freezes after
'Unmounting remote file system'.
I've tried to put "ifconfig wlan0 down" in the shutdown script, but the same...
Any suggestions, please?
similair problem only mine doesn't freeze, it just hangs for about 60 seconds and then continues with the normal shutdown...
still begs the question, whats causing it to pause. something that only started after i got my own wlan0 working using dhcpcd (3.0.5). had to spend the week upgrading my system to 126.96.36.199 and fiddle with the kernel to get everything "else" working, but other than this 60 pause, seems to be well worth it. i love my upgraded slackware 10.1 with the latest 2.6 kernel albeit the ati 9600 radeon is still not doing 10,000 fps (no complaints, i am happy that it is at least working at 150 fps)
wouldn't mind knowing how to shutdown the wlan0 (that's if it is what is causing the problem),
i cant seem to find the proper way to get dhcpcd to shutdown upon command
any help would be greatly appreciated
