This is going to sound a little bit weird but I am currently running Suse Linux 8.1 Pro on an AMD SMP motherboard.
If I shutdown the system via KDE, SHUTDOWN or INIT 0 I will be unable to start it up the next time by pressing the ON Switch. I'll have to take out the Power in lead for a few seconds and then I'll be able to start the system up by pressing the ON Switch. Now what I have been doing is "REBOOT" instead SHUTDOWN and then when Linux says Please wait while system is rebooting I'll press the ON/OFF Switch and hold it down until the system is OFF. Well by doing it this way next time I can simply press the ON Switch and It will start OK.
So does anyone here knows of a Kernel Parameter that I can add to the boot prompt to overcome this issue? :roll:
