ShutDown Problem with linux(red hat)
Actaully my system is not shutting down. I have tried all the possibilities with acpi and apm in Grub part after kernel but nothing happened. I also modified etc/modprobe.conf with apm power_off=1 but nothing happened.
and then ultimately I tried etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc and then added terminateServer but then also my problem was not solved.
ACPI is enabled I have chcked it out.
PLZ help me out.
It gives me error
INIT:no process left in this runlevel
Thanks a lot

What do you mean with "does not shut down"? What happens if you select "switch off" from the application menu?
What happens if you, as root, use the command:

I have a similar problem with a Debian based system, as it won't completely shut down when I tell it to.
My solution was to use the terminal command "shutdown".
Usage: shutdown [-akrhHPfnc] [-t secs] time [warning message] -a: use /etc/shutdown.allow -k: don't really shutdown, only warn. -r: reboot after shutdown. -h: halt after shutdown. -P: halt action is to turn off power. -H: halt action is to just halt. -f: do a 'fast' reboot (skip fsck). -F: Force fsck on reboot. -n: do not go through "init" but go down real fast. -c: cancel a running shutdown. -t secs: delay between warning and kill signal. ** the "time" argument is mandatory! (try "now") **
shutdown -h now
echo "userneme" >> /etc/shutdown allow
If this now works through a terminal, you can then make a script with this command in it. I put the script on my desktop, and I just click it to shutdown the computer. My script looks like this.
#!/bin/sh /sbin/shutdown -h now
chmod +x shutdownPaul
