Mandriva wont shut down
When I tell the computer to shut down it gets to about 95% of the way on the progress bar then it just stops and stays there. When I click to go into verbose mode i see written "shutdown halted".
What does this mean and how can I fix it?

Just curious - does it switch your machine off completely or do you have to do that manually following a shutdown? Most motherboards allow for a complete power-down. If not, then ACPI might need tweaking.I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it. - Pablo Picasso

Well if I just told mandriva to shut down it would get to about 95% then stay like that, on, forever. So i hold in the computers turn on button until is shuts down.
Can you help?

Some BIOS are buggy, I remember an option in menuconfig as a work around, don't really know how to implement it in a working systemPut your hand in an oven for a minute and it will be like an hour, sit beside a beautiful woman for an hour and it will be like a minute, that is relativity. --Albert Einstein

I have the same problem, if I restart it does everything fine but when I shutdown, it gets most of the way and then stops. I am running a dell Pentium 4, though one would probalby need the mother board for it to be of any help! Just thought that I would pitch in!

I'm having the same kind of problem, I installed Mandriva 2007 x64(HuangHe) and when it gets to the end sometimes it shuts down and sometimes I receive a LVM close error that has to do with /dev/cdrom.
