`shutdown -h now` won't powerdown


Hi all,

I have Suse 9.1 Pro on two boxes a PIII 600 and an Athlon 2000.
My problem lies in power down from a shutdown -h command.

The PIII works fine however the athlon hangs at the line:
"The system will be halted immediatly"

I don't know if this is related but two lines above the last is this:
"ERROR: The module dm_mod is in use"

It appears that the shutdown process has completed but the last action is not working.

FYI: I have had RedHat 9 running on the athlon and powerdown worked fine then.

Any ideas?

"It appears that the shutdown process has completed but the last action is not working."

Actually shutdown did not complete because of the failure to terminate dm_mod. I think that dm_mod has something to do with hot plug. Take a look at your boot messages. If you don't need dm_mod it may fail to initialize at boot which then makes it unable to terminate at shutdown. If that is the case you can solve two problems by removing dm_mod from the boot sequence.
