(Solved)Shutdown/Reboot
« 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.

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

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