Arch Linux (x86) hangs on shutdown/reboot.


For some reason, Arch Linux hangs whenever it is time to shutdown or reboot. I'll take a pic of it next time it happens, but I am puzzled. x86_64 Arch does not give me this problem, only x86.

Anyone got any ideas?

That's a complete shutdown, only the reboot doesn't happen. Probably a kernel thing. Your kernel?

Is this 32 bit distro on 64 bit system? That could be it.

Sorry. Is it a distro kernel or did you choose the options?

What command are you using for shutdown?
Code:
#shutdown -h now
This is odd, is this for a reboot or shutdown?

reboot

It seems shutting the system down works, but not rebooting.

Adding:
Code:
reboot=pci
From bug listing discussion to my boot options seems to have fixed the problem. Thanks.
