Why does the machine try to boot again after the OS has shutdown?
Because of the flag 0?
I set the boot_osflags to 0 and never have this trouble. Maybe the
auto_action make your box boot automatically as soon as it run SRM
console. I have never set this flag, so I can't confirm it.
But if you set the boot_osflags to a wrong value. Aboot will display a
menu allowing you to return to the SRM console.
So I could just create a small script 'halt_9' which runs
'echo 9 > /dev/srm/boot_osflags ; shutdown -h now '
and 9 would be statement 9 of 'aboot.conf':
0:1/vmlinuz-2.4.18-generic ro root=/dev/sda3
9:1/vmlinuz ro root=/dev/sda3
And 9 calls the standard 2.2.20 kernel ...
Sounds cool (and like 'lilo -R') :-)
