Hi, The other day I did a complete rebuild by doing a fresh install/CVsup on my office machine and brought it to FreeBSD 6.1 RELEASE-p3. The box is a Dell Optiplex GX-270. It is dual booted with Win XP. I didn't make any changes to the XP.
Previously, if I did a 'shutdown -h now' it would do the shutdown and stop with a message on the console saying: The Operating system has halted Please press any key to reboot Then I could let it set and either cut the power or hit a key and make it reboot. But. Now, I do the shutdown -h now and it goes down to that halted state with the same message. But, when I hit a key it seems to ignore it and just sits there and seems to do nothing. To reboot then, I have to kill the power and turn it back on. I am not trying to get it to go all the way down to poweroff - just sit there and wait for me to hit a key for a reboot - without doing a poweroff, which worked fine under FreeBSD 4.xxx Has anyone noticed something like this? Is it an OS change/bug or did I probably do something weird when I did the reinstall. It is more of an annoyance than a big problem, but something isn't right. By the way, shutdown -r now seems to work as expected. Also, on another box I have here - A Dell Precision 330 which is currently at FreeBSD 6.0 (also dual booted, but with Win-200x) it seems to work as I expect and as the other one did before the upgrade. ////jerry _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
