System freezes when shutting down
Dear Linux friends,

after finishing my KDE 2.2.1 I return to the graphic login. Then I select "shutdown" and confirm.

The screen gets black and then again shows only the background of my login screen... and that's it. No mouse or keyboard input whatsoever possible. Only RESET makes the machine move again.

My questions:
1) Where can I check what's going on? (e.g. log files etc)
2) Already any idea what the problem could be?

Another opint is that this not regularly happens but let's say in 7 of 10 cases of
shutting down.

i presume your doing this from the KDE menu to shutdown, if you are, does it ever freeze if you try a logout ?? then from there you can go to the command and try to type manually to shutdown the machine and see if it freezes that way too.. just something to try i guess to pinpoint the problem.

Cannot change to text mode
When I finish my KDE, I get the login-screen. Then I already have treid to push ctrl-alt-F1 to change to the text console, but the system freezed there as well.

Note: all the time, I am in graphical mode.

Sincerely yours,

I know that there might be another way to fix it, but your first bet is to update KDE to a stable relase such as 2.2.2
