Hi all,
I am running FC2 on an IBM T21. I updated from the 2.6.8-1.521 to
2.6.9-1.6.FC2 kernel. Now the computer doesn't shutdown and stays at the
"system halted". This used to work with the 2.6.8. I still haven't tried
suspending which again used to work fine.
Has something changed in the new kernel ?

Seem that something has changed in 2.6.9 because it is not a problem in 2.6.8 Because I can't poweroff the machine even the faq or other option sugguested apm=off acpi=off.... etc.

Why use 'apm=off?. I use 'acpi=off' (i.e apm=on) - and no problems with shutdown on a T40/FC3. But things could be different on T21/FC2.

Sorry, I don't know why and some people tell me it work and one new
answer to me is acpi=on and hasn't test it work or not...

I wonder why the above off option works in others but not work in mine....


This issue needs to be resolved. I use acpi=on and the shutdown used t work with eqarlier kernels. For now, I just hold in the power button to turn off the computer on shutdown.

What broke it and why it is taking so long for a remedy is beyond my understanding.
