FC3 doesn't shut down!


Hi, I've installed FC3 in my PC and when I want to shut down the system, it doesn't, runs killall and then I can see a black screen and at the bottom it says "acpi_power_off called" and there's where it stops the shutdown.
Please help me, I think this is a bug, with FC2 I haven't this problem.
Thank in advance!

your BIOS may not support software shutdown...just like on old windows 95 machines it would shutdown and then tell you it was safe to power down the computer....check in your motherboard's manual to see if your BIOS version supports software shutown.

Hi,

This problem is well-known. Add acpi=ht to the end of your kernel line in grub.conf:

default=0
timeout=10
splashimage=(hd0,1)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.7-10)
root (hd0,1)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.7-10 ro root=/dev/hda3 hdc=ide-scsi acpi=ht
initrd /initrd-2.4.7-10.img
title Windows 2000
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

I'm not on linux at the moment so i just copied some grub.conf on the web for demo purpose. It's not a FC3's grub.conf. It just means to show you where to add the parameter.

Edit: what am i doing?!!! I got the solution from this forum. The thread just resurfaced. Here's the link http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=253162
