This is my first post, so I'm sure I'm probably about to break some rules, but I'll still go ahead and give it a shot:
I've recently installed Ubuntu 6.10, and I'm very pleased with it, but I just started having a problem with shutting down my computer. All the applications seem to be able to stop (this coming from a total Linux newbie), but right when the Ubuntu loading screen finishes to "unload", or rather, finishes the preperations to shutdown, well, nothing happens at all, it just stays there and doesn't turn the power off.
I started having this problem right after following a tutorial to install XGL Compiz on DIGGs. I'd really appreciate some help,
Try disabling Beryl/Compiz and using nv as your video driver for a test.
The X server crashed after I switched the driver's name to nv,but I was successfully able to shutdown, so I'm guessing it's really a problem with the X server not being able to terminate. Any other suggestions?
Could you please use the nv driver (which will fail) and then post the output of the file /var/log/Xorg.0.log
Be sure to copy the file before restarting the server again with nvidia, so the contents don't get lost
