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
By the way, shutdown -r now seems to work as expected.
I have the exact same problem after updating from FBSD 5.4. I had
thought it was just me.
Here I had exactly the same problem on my ancient laptop running
6.1-STABLE. I solved the problem by removing the kbdmux device from my
kernel configuration. This laptop uses the atkbd driver for the keyboard.
I also verified this on a Pentium 4, also using an AT keyboard: if
kbdmux is in the kernel configuration the problem occurs, if it is not,
the system behaves normally when using "shutdown -h now".
So I advise to delete or comment the line:
device kbdmux # keyboard multiplexer
from your kernel configuration file and recompile the kernel.
You probably do not need kbdmux if you use just one single type of keyboard.
