I have SuSE7.1 and upgraded to 2.4.6 kernel.Everything I configured works fine except my computer will not Login Manager,sessions tab "allow to shutdown" is set to "all" but still does not shutdown on its own.Anyone have an idea on a fix?

I'm not a SUSE user and am still kindof a Newbie, but anyhow, here is my input, for what it is worth.

# su
# [superuser's password]
# shutdown -h now (this will halt the machine)
# shutdown -r now (this will restart the machine)

did this problem start appearing just after you installed the 2.4.6 kernel? it seems really strange that a kernel upgrade would cause the computer to upset it's reboot or shutdown config.

Well,when I installed it is when I started getting this prob.Only does this in 2.4.6 the 2.4.4 kernel is ok.I used Xconfig to set parameters for 2.4.6 cuz oldconfig does not work for me.Shutdown from a terminal will not work either.Maybe I'll take another look in xconfig and see if I missed something.
