/sbin/reboot .. intermittent ...
Ive got a problem, suddenly, selecting re-boot from KDM doesn't always
The system always shuts down and unmounts but about 50% of the time it just
hangs with the HDD light on !!! When this happens the very last line
"rebooting" does not appear.
The other 50% of the time everything is AOK, the message "rebooting" appears
and all is OK
It was fine till a few days ago. Reciently I have apt-upgraded my system,
played with bochs, ....... wget ....... aptitude......nothing to terrible.
I have scoured var/log gor a hint of what is happening, there are no error
codes there, I am at a bit of a loss.
I have re-compiled my kernel, you never know ....
Maybe I should add it happens to both my debian partition systems, my
experimantal and main. boch is only installed on my experimental, the apt-get
upgrade etc have been applied to both.
In addition, now I may be getting paranoid but my second hard drive seems to
clunk and activate, this is an archive drive, ext3, used once a week.
I have even checked my BIOS but all appears AOK ...
Any ideas ??
Dave ...well it was working perfectly ... !!
