    Shuting down from Fluxbox


    To shutdown my system i just open xterm, suid into root and "shutdown now" or "halt" but I always get some strange problems with the X Server (corruption, etc) The system never shutdown so i have to do a hard shutdown. However i can stop xdm and the shutdown without problems. so, how is the best way to shutdown from Fluxbox?

    Can you post the error messages you get (the strange problems you refer to) ?
