Do you mean that selecting Shutdown from the KDE GUI does nothing, or that the
GUI closes and a lot of text lines appear shutting down things, but the
machine doesn't power off?
If the second, then here's the solution for Mandrake 10.1, quoting from my
Mandrake chooses not to activate ACPI at install due to some
PC's have badly broken implementations. To activate ACPI, try the following
1) In MCC/Software Management/Install, install the packages acpi and acpid
2) In MCC/Boot/Boot Loader tick the box for 'Enable ACPI' then the Next
button, then double-click on your default boot option and ensure the 'Append'
box includes 'acpi=on', click OK then Finish to save the new boot option.
3) In MCC/System/Services ensure acpi and acpid are set to run at boot
4) Reboot, then from the command line run dmesg to check for a message about
ACPI being enabled
5) If dmesg reports all OK, then try shutting down
6) If dmesg reports a problem, go back to step 2, change the Append to be
'acpi=force' and then go to 4 again.
For this and other Mandrake related questions, it is more appropriate to post
to the Mandrake mailing lists, you can subscribe at:
The English Newbie list is particularly helpful (even if I must say so
myself :-), but there's also a list 'en Espanol' if you prefer:
