As mentioned in the man page, halt(8) should not be used for regular shutting down of the system. shutdown(8) is preferred for several reasons, not the least of which is that it will call /etc/rc.shutdown which will (among other things) run through your rc.d scripts in reverse order with the 'stop' argument so that those services get clean shutdowns. If you want to turn the power off as well the -p option exists for this purpose. hth, Doug -- This .signature sanitized for your protection _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
