Shutdown problem with Fedora 3


I just installed Fedora Core 3 and after some tweaking I got it working properly except for 1 thing. When I try to shut down the pc it all goes well until the message that the APCI is shutting down, there it just hangs and does nothing. Does anybody know what causes this and how to fix it? It's getting anoying having to boot windows just to shut down my system.

Getting ACPI to work is very tricky with some motherboards. When I had a problem with my shutdown this is what I did:

Downloadeded the kernel source from
patched it with Len Browns acpi patches available here:
rebuild it and updated my bootup
booted the new kernel
Shutdown works!

Now rebuilding the linux kernel is no easy task for a newbie so maybe in your case I would reccomend trying a diferent distibution or just accepting it.
