Shutdown Handler Error
Ok, just switched to Slackware10.1 from Drake10.1

Anyways aside from not being to shure how to shut down (I have been using shutdown -h now)
But when i do that or when i use "init 0" as suggested by someone else. I get an error

something like Handler cant sync? i dont know how to stop it... it doesnt happen when i use ctrl alt del to shutdown (i dont think thats a good way of doing it tho) anyways, im gonna shutdown now to get it and write it down...

Actually, CTRL-ALT-DEL is an absolutely acceptable way to shut down Slackware. The key combination and resulting action is actually located in the /etc/inittab file and simple calls shutdown for you. Although, by default, I believe it actually reboots the computer instead of simply shutting it down. Either way, you can customize the entry in inittab to do whatever you'd like.

Post the error message you are getting when doing a 'init 0' and maybe someone can shed some light on the mysterious message.

Yeah well i posted what i thought was most relevent, the rest seamed to be addressess a lot of hex and such.

and there is no way to directly copy it seeing as the computer is techicaly off? i have no user inputs.
