mandriva 2006 wont shutdown

You can see if you got rid of all your 2007 RPMs like this. I am assuming the 2007 RPMs all have mdv in their names whereas the 2006 RPMs all have mdk.Code:
rpm -qa | grep mdvCode:
rpm -V SysVinit rpm -V glibc

Possibly a problem with ACPI (power management). I've seen that problem before and seen it solved. You probably don't need to know now, but that's generally the case when you have shutdown problems ...
You can toggle ACPI settings in a few ways:
1. By passing different arguments to Lilo at boot time (I don't like this option);
2. By entering the Mandriva control centre, looking in 'Boot' and playing around with settings in there (my prefered method);
3. Entering your BIOS at boot time and toggling ACPI on/off (a last resort?)
Just my 2 pence worth.

I guess it's too late now, but if the rpm -V or rpm -q commands can't find glibc, you might have trashed your RPM database in /var/lib/rpm. If that is the case, you could rebuild it. I've never issued this command, and I would not recommend that you do it unless you are pretty sure the database is corrupted.Code:
Puppy Linux has such an interesting name that I want to try it, but I haven't gotten to it yet.

Puppy made a "comPile" in the corner(feeling like Fozzie bear being yanked off the stage by the neck...)
