I’m on Milestone 4, and still suffering the same bug that I’ve had since 11.0, and frankly it’s driving me nuts. It happens on several other distros too, and I’ve found fixes on some of them (all due thanks to EeeUser and the ArchWiki), so I’m hoping a bit of brute force and ignorance will do it on SUSE.
Basically, it seems that the snd_hda_intel module hangs when attempting to unload itself, putting the eee in an unbootable state. You have to pull the plug out and put it back in to reset it - needless to say this gets boring quickly.
I tried fixing it on zenwalk, and didn’t get too far, but I did find logs indicating that various things were segfaulting during shutdown. I can’t find similar on SUSE - the only thing seeming to record the shutdown is /var/log/messages, and there’s nothing particularly threatening looking in there.
At the moment I’ve got the following in /etc/rc.d/halt.local
/etc/rc.d/alsasound stop sleep 3 echo -n "0000:00:1b.0" > /sys/bus/pci/drivers/HDA\ Intel/unbind sleep 3 rmmod snd_hda_intel sleep 3
Can anyone tell me if there are other logs anywhere that might help? Or if there’s a way to redirect the output of the above commands to the terminal visible during shutdown? Or record dmesg, or something…?
