    Reinstall


    A Senior Citizen Newbie
    Kindly help me please. I'm impressed by SuSE 9.1 Pro. The only problem is that the machine doesn't obey the shut command and I've to ctr+alt+del it.
    I've installed it on a slave thus keeping win and SuSE apart.
    What's the best option? Reformat slave and reinstall? if yes, how?
    Or any other suggestions?

    open a konsole window and type :
    Code:
    shutdown -h "now"
    or
    Code:
    halt -p
    check if that works...(login as root first..)

    Some more info.
    A young person reinstalled SuSE using the disks.
    Great prog, but when asked to shut down , at the very last minute it bleeped and asked to press F2, which was done
    here are the last lines on the screen (hope this will help)
    Proc unmounted ---done
    The system will be halted immediately
    Bmaster Resource Control:
    run level 0 has been reached
    Skipped services in runlevel 0 smbfs

    one entry in white before all the above reads:
    shutting down sys log services- unused
    u kindly suggested enabling acpi, but I'm scared of doing this, simply because I do not know how to
