Thread: Intermitted fail to shutdown in 11.4

  1. #1

    Default Intermitted fail to shutdown in 11.4

    Most of the time shutdown works normally, but sometimes the shutdown process reaches a point where the screen is off, the cooling fan stops, and it sounds like the HDD powers down, but the power and WiFi lights remain on (I have waited over 2 minutes). If I force a shutdown at this point when I next start up there are no file system checks run suggesting that the file system synced before I forced power off.

    I have set the system to shutdown when the lid is closed. This problem has occurred with both a manual shutdown (from the KDE "Leave" menu) and with a lid closure. I always close all applications before I do a shutdown.

    This is on an Acer Extensa 5220 with a fresh install of 11.4 - 64 bit as the only operating system. Installed using the net install disk. KDE installed as the desktop.

    This same laptop has previously run Ubuntu (for several years) and then Debian and Fedora briefly before I decided on openSuse. None of these other versions of Linux had this problem.

    This problem is happening more often. Originally about 1 in 10 shutdowns failed, now it is closer to 1 in 2. My laptop is turned on and off multiple times each day, so this is a real problem for me. I would really like to keep using openSuse, it is a nice distro, but if no one can suggest a solution I shall have to move to another distro.

    Thank you in advance to anyone who could shed some light on this issue.

    Hi,

    Did you check in verbose mode (press ESC when you see the shutdown screen appear) if there was errors ?

    And also, you may want to check log files for anything unusual, so that you can get a lead on the issue. For list list for important log files, see: Linux log files location and how do I view logs files?
    The only problem with troubleshooting is that sometimes trouble shoots back.

    Thank you DaaX and yasar11732,

    I managed to capture the logs for a good shutdown and a failed shutdown. The differences between the two are in the very end of the shutdown sequence. I have placed the sections below:

    First a good shutdown:

    Code:

    and the failed shutdown:

    Code:
    Mar 18 16:33:38 linux-44a8 shutdown[5970]: shutting down for system halt
    Mar 18 16:33:38 linux-44a8 nm-dispatcher.action: Script '/etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/autofs' exited with error status 1.

    There is a little difference in the entry sequence which I assume is just the logging routine. The differences I note are:

    In the failed shutdown the avahi-daemon registers a new address (not sure why given network should be shut down) at timestamp 16:33:39. There is no such action in the good shutdown

    In the good shutdown the acpid exits at time stamp 16:50:49, but there is no such exit in the failed shutdown.

    I don't know enough if the two events are related. Certainly the acpi daemon failing to exit may be the cause of the shutdown issue.

    So can anyone interpret this? Any suggestions for tweaks or additional tests I could do to help isolate the problem?

    Thank you

    To check that there is not some config issue I did a fresh install of openSuse onto a separate hard drive. Again used Network install. This time chose Gnome desktop. No additional programs installed. Minimal config (set the system to shutdown on closing the lid). Problem still present.

    Default Re: Re : Re: Intermitted fail to shutdown in 11.4

    Well I have tried all sorts of testing with how and when I shut down, all to no benefit. I have tried shutting down just with lid closure, just with the menu, and various combinations. I can find no pattern. I also set the lid close back to default and this problem still occurs. I even tried running 32 bit in case there was some hardware issue with 64 bit. Still the problem occurs. The best I can suggest is that there is something in my hardware which is not compatible with openSuse.

    I will try entering a bug report on this so hopefully it can be solved.

    I guess it is time for me to start evaluating another distribution as not being able to shutdown reliably is just not acceptable performance from an OS.

    Hello Fronzenpenguin, and Linux Gurus

    Could you solve your problem? I have now and then some similar problem... when I sleep my notebook sometimes everything stays frozen and the only way to restart is the power button or sysreq alt B (I have this enabled on kernel)

    I made a simple forum search and I get to you post because this string "nm-dispatcher.action" that also fails just when my notebook hungs on sleep.

    Here I post two failure logs from the last two times my notebook freezed on sleep (I mean, the screen stays on, the fan runs at its highst speed, and the only restart way is with the powerbutton or sysreq+ALT+B)

    Please notice the time stamps, when it skips several hours is when I click on sleep and the notebook freezes and also the "nm-dispatcher.action" fails.

    I have a hunch that it is something to do with the wireless driver or the network applet... can you help me trace the problem?

    Here is my network hardware info, if there is anything else needed to get to a solution, please askme.

    Thanks,
