Description David Monniaux 2002-11-04 18:25:06 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003

Description of problem:
If APM is compiled as a module, /etc/rc.d/init.d/apm stop will unload it. This
disables APM power-off.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Compile and install a kernel with APM as a module.
2.In modules.conf: options apm power_off=1
4.shutdown -h now	

Actual Results:  The system does not power-off.

Expected Results:  The system should have powered off.

Additional info:

The line /sbin/modprobe -r apm in /etc/rc.d/init.d/apmd causes the problem. It's
useless and should be removed, which fixes the problem.
