Description Adrian Likins 1999-03-25 21:54:38 UTC
Trying to issue the command: shutdown -h now From an xterm, particularly when in run level 5, causes the shutdown to stop just after issueing the shutdown message. At that point, the shutdown appears to stop, while the machine seems vaguely responsive (numlock works, changing vc's works) but there is no way to force the shutdown to continue, or to abort it. ctrl-alt-delete appears to be ignored. seen on several support tickets in 5.2, and duplicated on a p100, 32meg, s3 vision 968 vid card (apu) running 5.9.

can you still reproduce this in 6.0?

The output of chkconfig --list might be useful in diagnosing this.
