Hi all

I am very happy with my paldosystem It works like a charm. Better than allmost any off all the distros i have tried (the one exeption was ArchLinux)

But when i update my system (TESTING for the fun of it) from commandline (I would not dare to do serious system work in X), I can't somtimes switch back to X. And when I then issue the halt command, the system sends a few messages ending with

System halted !!

But it has not ended services properly, and whats even worse not unmounted the disks. And there is nothing to do but a hard reboot. Until now nothing bad has happened. But this could potentially lead to dataloss and an unbootable system.

Have a nice day½

I will stay with paldo for at least some time. It looks like a nice and friendly community

Hi,

the recommended way to shutdown the system from the command line is

Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
shutdown -h now


Can you try whether that works as expected? We'll have to check why `halt' doesn't initiate a regular system shutdown.

Hi again

shutdown -h now

works as expected from the commandline. But I can't switch back from commandline to X again (ctrel + alt + F7) in all cases. It sometimes works and other times not.

Thank you for the fast response
