Ubuntu :: System Doesn't Stay Shutdown?

Nov 27, 2010

When I shut down the computer, it does not remain shut down. This is different from "restarting" the computer because when I "shutdown" the computer powers down, the fan and disks stop spinning for a second, and then everything starts again. When I "restart" the fan and disks remain spinning throughout the restart process.Further, the computer is dual booting with Windows XP Pro. If I shut down from Windows, the system remains shut down.

System Information:
Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx
kernel: 2.6.32-26-generic

Ubuntu Servers :: Squid Causing /var To Stay Busy During Shutdown?

Apr 3, 2011

i just wanted to check if its something silly ive overseen and if anyone else is having this problem...im running Ubuntu 10.04.2 LTS with latest version of squid 2.7.STABLE7-1ubuntu12.2. now when i shutdown or reboot the system, it says something along this lines of umount: /var is busy (check using lsof...). this is followed by text in red: [fail].when the system starts up again, i can see /var journal is recovering, so the /var partition was not cleanly unmounted during shutdown. obviously, there is a risk of filesystem corruption here. FYI, i have /var and other important mountpoints as separate partitions (LVM; ext4).

to confirm my suspicions of squid still running during shutdown, i checked /var/log/squid/cache.log and there is no indication that it received the signal to terminate. if i manually run "stop squid", then cache.log would show that squid has stopped successfully (or words to that effect).to confirm that /var is locked by squid during shutdown, ive added a script to run "lsof | grep var" before filesystems are unmounted. and voila! it indicates that various files used by squid in /var such as swap.state are still open. hence, the next system startup would result in /var recovering journal again.finally, i tried running "stop squid" before issuing the shutdown command and it successfully unmounts /var and i do not get /var recovering journal on the next system startup.

OpenSUSE Install :: System Doesn't Shutdown / Restart?

Aug 21, 2011

I have opensuse 11.4 (Gnome + KDE) installed. The problem is with Gnome. When in KDE, everything works fine. But in gnome, when I shutdown/restart, it merely logs off the session. Then I have to shutdown it from the menu in the login screen.

Ubuntu :: Live CD - Doesn't Boot - "Loading" The Screen Goes Blank And The System Shutdown

Jan 1, 2011

I've made a Live CD of version 10.04 on a machine running 10.04 (amd64). The disk boots fine on a 2nd machine but does not boot on the machine that created it. The CD/DVD is new and works for other things so I don't think it is this. The Live CD gets to the ISOLINUX screen but instead of "Loading" the screen goes blank and the system shuts down. I've tried everything I can think of (the disk works fine on another machine).

CentOS 5 Server :: Cron Job Doesn't Run, But Doesn't Error. "shutdown -r Now"

Aug 28, 2009

Is there something that blocks cron from running a shutdown command? I'm doing a daily bounce to break an attack (I have thread about that in security forum), but I always end up doing it manually. The cron log shows it being fired off at the right time...but the server never bounces. I thought maybe I just missed it, but there is nothing in messages that shows the server restarting (unlike when i do it manually, you see the start-up logging).

General :: Shutdown Works And Init 0 Doesn't So How Are They Different

Jul 7, 2011

When I bring down a certain machine with some nfs mounts using init 0, it hangs forever while trying to bring down the mounts, but if I bring it down using halt -p (which I've read just calls shutdown if I'm in init 3), it comes down in a timely manner. I've also read that shutdown still calls all the rc.d kill scripts just like init 0, so what is actually the difference between them? Is it this:


All processes are first notified that the system is going down by the signal SIGTERM?Does init not do that? I'm not trying to directly troubleshoot why NFS makes me hang with init 0 at this point, just wondering why shutdown works whereas init 0 doesn't.

Debian Multimedia :: Jessie - LXDE Doesn't Shutdown Properly

May 19, 2015

I know the problem has been partly solved in this old thread [URL] .....

Now we have Jessie as stable, yet LXDE doesn't shutdown properly:

On the same computers, Wheezy LXDE shut down very fast

I installed Jessie from the netinstall image.

On a 2007 computer, it's like the old days with a Pentium II running some version of Puppy Linux or Slitaz. The system shuts down after a while but the computer remains on.

On a 2013 laptop, I added the line init=/bin/systemd in the Grub default file as advised on the old thread above. The laptop shuts down after a while, the system first, then the hard disk goes to sleep, then all the leds are off.

If I run the magic command, the computer shutdowns in a breeze, perhaps even quicker than good old Wheezy:

Code: Select all# systemctl poweroff

Now, is this still a systemd bug? Doesn't look like it since the systemctl command works. Is it an LXDE bug? Looks like it in a way - if the LXDE shutdown button enabled the systemctl poweroff command, I suppose the button would work?

Is there a way to make the LXDE shutdown button run the systemctl poweroff command?

I'm glad Wheezy is still with us because I wouldn't install Jessie for newbies — they'd think shutdown (through clicking on a button) is even worse than in Windows.

Ubuntu :: System Shutdown Without Any Permission

May 4, 2010

From couple of mins my system shutdowned without my permission I thought I'm infected or something because I installed aMSN so I thought it's because of it, but I checked my syslog and found this:

Ubuntu :: NIC Not Turned Off On System Shutdown / Sort It?

Feb 26, 2010

It appears I've got some strange driver problem.. When I shut down this computer, the NIC apparently doesn't go off. The LEDs next to the ethernet socket keep blinking, so does the LED on my ethernet switch.

I don't have this problem when using XP, only Karmic. That leads me to think that there's something wrong with the network driver. My NIC is on-board, the ASUS M3A32-MVP. According to System Info this is the Marvell 88E8056 PCI-E.
It seems like ASUS doesn't have the drivers on their website (anymore), because their website search returns empty handed. Also the motherboard product page doesn't appear to know it.

Anyone have any tips / ideas? I'm just unplugging the machine before turning it off now... as it appears to be disturbing the rest of my network

Ubuntu :: Change System Shutdown Order

Oct 3, 2010

My Ubuntu file server sits under a desk and shares files with the network without a hitch, and in a perfect world I wouldn't ever need to shut it down (I reached 6 months uptime once). However, since it occasionally needs service, or additions and needs to be moved, I need to shut down.

The trouble is, the power management system is borked, so whenever I issue "sudo powerff now", the system halts, but the PSU stays on. I usually wait a few minutes after and flip the PSU switch, but I'm never sure if the system is already down.

Is there a way to reorder the way services shut down so that I put SSH last, and therefore know when the system is down when my session is disconnected? Is defaults.rc or whatever responsible for that?

It seems to go through all shutdown processes but right about the time you expect the computer to turn off a message says: "system halted [4027.514883]" Have Googled it but no matches. If I just push the on/off button at that point it shuts off immediately

Fedora :: System Shutdown Only Logs Out

Feb 14, 2011

I currently run kernel (sort of). When I select from the Gnome menu System -> Shutdown and select Shutdown from the dialog, my system only logs out, presenting me with the greeting screen. While this is a minor problem and I rarely shutdown my machine, it is mildly disconcerting.I have dropped back to and that shutdowns properly using this method. (Also, works properly). I can imagine that it might close some security issue in which an unauthorized user is able to halt the entire machine. Especially if this is something that will continue in future releases of the kernel.
