I don't bother to switch my RH off very often, but to successfully shutdown the speedtouch. you'll need to kill all the daemons using it.

At a prompt type...

killall pppd
killall mgmt
killall speedtouch (or speedtch or whatever mdk calls it)

And for good measure, kill the usb system, assuming its a module as well ..

killall uhci
shutdown -h now

Should work.

uhh and a errr

anyone who has been following this interesting thread should note a new fix:

this will solve hanging shutdowns and slow browsing...

Modify your /etc/modules.conf file and change the line

alias usb-interface usb-uhci


alias usb-interface uhci

The change will take effect after the next shutdown and will prevent the usb service from locking up the computer.

Now i have been told by some that shutdown hangs may occur infrequently but at least the browsing will be faster and with linux you will NOT have to shutdown or reboot near as many times as M$ (just had to throw that in :-D)

the shell commands are:
modem_run -m -f/usr/share/speedtouch/mgmt.o (assuming that that is where you put your mgmt.o)
pppd call adsl

Now, before you do that, make sure the adsl file reads correctly because the vci vpi numbers keep disappearing. It's a Mandrake BUG!!!!
(8 and 35 for the USA, France, Belgium, Italy and Norway I think - 0 and 38 for UK and Ireland and a lot of other places)

When you have done your pppd call adsl wait a bit and then enter ifconfig to see if you're connected.
Now, sometimes you will be connected and STILL cannot resolve properly and f me I do not know why that should be.
