Question how do I restart red hat 7.3


This may be a stupid question but how do I shut the red hat 7.3 system down. I am a generational win user and it dosen't like to be shut off unless you tell it first ( stupid thing runs sc..... well you know)

I had problems with the install do to bad media. I had to bypass the xscreensaver-?.??.? package and some other packages to get the install.

It rebooted up and finally came up to the gnome gui, but I don't find a way to restart or shut down the system. I am working with a right button only mouse too. I Have 2 hd's (western digital 2.1gig that I installed the RH and a western digital 10 gig that has win 95 on it) I disconected the 10 gig so that the install could not damage that system. I would like to reconnect it to set up a dual boot, but connecting while hot is not good. So how do I shut it down????

Another issue is that the bios dosen't seam to recognize the 2 gig drive unless the 10 gig is hooked up too. Yes I have played with the jumper settings and that didn't help. I thought it might be because the install had not finnished its drive setup? I have also hooked them to the secondary ide port, no help.

Another issue is seting up the eithernet card ( it's legacy ). No recources have been asigned to it yet, that is one reason I need the win system up, this machine requires a wird confg do to pnp and legacy cards. The Bios is up to date ( most recent for this main board). Setting up the NIC might be easier knowing how the win 95 is set up. So I am back to needing to shut the machine down. Howw???

thanks

thank GOD for his passion

open a console (xterm), or quit the X-Windows interface, then type "shutdown", "poweroff", or "init 0" to shut down and "restart", "init 6", or "reboot" to restart.

You might have to be root for some or all of them.

thanks

I got around the mouse problem and then I was able to shut the box down. It restarted fine and all that. I am running into a problem with some of the features in gnome not working because my copy of xscreensaver-3.33-4 couldn't be installed. Like I said I am on dial-up so downloading a whole distro is out (30+ hours). Where or what web site can i download just that rpm?(file) from. I also had to bypass ypbind and ypserv and one other one witch I gather are important to network configuration, witch I need. So I will need to get them too. ( almost forgot I will have to download this stuff to an XP box and then burn to CD unless I can get the NIC working. )

I started to confg the NIC but I couldn't determine what IRQs and DMAs were free to easing to the NIC. I know that Winduh really complains if you assign used resources to some other card and then it hangs and etc etc. Will that happen if I just assign resources to it? How would I find out what resources are available? GUI procedures would be easier

A puzzling thing The boy put a CD in the drive and it mounted(?) fine but then he couldn't get the drive to open. When he powered the machine down then the drive opened fine. Is this normal? Does the drive have to be unmounted(?) before you can change CDs? If so how do I do that?)

Hi,

Sorry I don't know much about IRQ's or your other problems. You should start a new thread for those - it will attract more qualified attention.

Redhat maintain all their rpm's on an ftp server (at least for now) here

There are a lot of RedHat mirror sites around too.

Also there's a site called rpm repository that can be useful sometimes.
