    I will try to change operating system to linux4one ubuntu based, look what I can see there and go back to you.
    Hope this will work.
    Thanks for you're patience.

    Andy, I was trying to figure out where you should use this part

    # I use this to halt and reboot the system, but it isn't wise to put it
    # in widely accessible boxes.
    # "----" f.nop
    # "" f.nop
    # "# I use this to halt and reboot the system, but it isn't wise to put it
    # in widely accessible boxes.
    # "----" f.nop
    # "" f.nop
    # "halt" f.bgcmd "/sbin/shutdown -h now"
    # "reboot" f.bgcmd "/sbin/shutdown -r now""
    # "reboot" f.bgcmd "/sbin/shutdown -r now"
    and especially this line
    f.bgcmd "/sbin/shutdown -h now"
    in your shutdown menu but not being a linpus user has me at a loss. Looking at your pasted file that section looks to be the heart of the matter.

    I installed linux4one based on ubuntu 8.04
    in shutdown -h new it says: illegal time value
    under login, shutdown I get
    can not access /var/log/kern.log no such file exists
    / var/log/
    starting acpi service
    starting system manage bus
    starting tools back...
    starting network connection manager Network Manager
    could not create regular file user/share/netbook-launcher/ubuntu.png no such file or directory
    starting power nowd
    starting hardware abstraction layer
    starting DHCP D-Bus daemon
    starting periodic comand scheduler
    running local boot script etc/rc.local

    The different log files haven't been created yet, since it's a new installation. They will be created on the second boot, theoretically.
    If you go into a terminal, you should be able to see them under /var/log. If they are present, then there is a broken link from the shutdown login.
    The .png file is an icon. I'm not sure why it is missing. Did you check the md5sum for the ISO to make sure it was a good burn?

    Can't find var/log/kern/log. and so on. Google for it can't find it. Downlod new linux4one burned it with low speed. Try to install and got GRUB loading stage 1.5.
    GRUB loading, please wait..
    ERROR 15
    But I can see all boot option in Bios
    Try Super Grub Disk
    Still the same
    It get everytime worse.
    Start in June that the Acer went black-typical Acer problem need new bios-couldn't flash bios also in the shop where i bought it- They send it to Acer (is 80km from me)-got it back with my famous shutdown prolem and now this.
    Is it Acer or I'm the idiot?

    Can you boot a live cd or sd ? If so you can write from that. Super Grub disk should work, from what I understand.
    You will have to rewrite /boot/grub/menu.lst.

    The /var/log files are supposed to be written by the OS as it boots. Anything you put in them is invalid. I think that there may be a problem with linux4one if it isn't writing them. You may want to try another distro, or ask the maintainers of linux4one what is going on.
    I'm not sure how many people are involved with the project, but on the website, it mentions minimum disk writing as far as log files go. Maybe it is only supposed to write log files when there is a hardware problem.
    Linux4One - Distribuzione Acer Aspire One is their home website.
