Title: (Solved)Shutdown/Reboot
Post by: zbreaker on May 09, 2014, 02:24:09 AM
Hmmmmm..

After dist-upgrade a week or two ago I cannot shutdown/reboot from the normal right click option.
I "think" it was after an upgrade when apt mentioned "systemd" as a new package. Log out works but clicking on
either shutdown or reboot does nothing. Currently accomplishing both via terminal ( eg: sudo shutdown -h now) but it would
be nice to get back to normal, Any insights appreciated. All else running flawlessly.

At work atm.

Going to give it a shot later tonight hopefully. From what I read in the post it looks like the 2 cases are pretty analogous.

Always helps to "search" first  :-[...but I was having a hectic evening. Will let you know. Thanks as always!

No issues man... we all have to deal with chaos once in a while.. 

I just hope it gets you solved and want to know also what the heck is happening to have apt remove systemd

I have not seen anything like this at all and it troubles me

Were python and dbus also updated? Might want to run the vsido-exit script in a terminal and see if it throws a python or gtk error at you.

^ Both of those have recently been updated... my issue is why some folks see it and not others

zbreaker, it will also be interesting to try the following commands from terminal,
Code: [Select]
sudo systemctl rebootor
Code: [Select]
sudo systemctl poweroffOutput from this commands will provide some useful information.
Cheers!!!

Late breaking news.....

After a apt-get install -f & reboot, shutdown/restart menu working as intended. But, system takes an inordinate amount of time to initially
boot up about 1-1/2 to 2 minutes! Screen dialog hangs at systems fsck of sdb4 (root) and all disk activity seems to stop. Then after awhile
sequence resumes and I'm at login. I've 3 hd's in this box - 1TB, 500G & 500G. No probs previously. Will tackle this later in the weekend.
I love a good challenge ;)

Good to hear...

When you get a chance, please post your fstab so that can be analyzed... your long boot issue is most likely related to a setting there

Cheers

Comment (#) out the swap line in the fstab and your boot time should go back to normal...
