Description Phil Miller 2011-04-06 17:18:34 UTC
Version: unspecified (using KDE 4.6.2) OS: Linux sysvinit 2.88 don't recongize "/sbin/shutdown -p now" which is the default now with 4.6.2. Proper settings would be: [Shutdown] # The command (subject to word splitting) to run to halt the system. # Default is "/sbin/halt" #HaltCmd= Or: [Shutdown] # The command (subject to word splitting) to run to halt the system. # Default is "/sbin/shutdown -h now" #HaltCmd= Here the list of all the switches shutdown has atm:[phil@chakra-desktop buildroot]$ shutdown --help shutdown: you must be root to do that! Usage: shutdown [-akrhPHfFnc] [-t sec] time [warning message] -a: use /etc/shutdown.allow -k: don't really shutdown, only warn. -r: reboot after shutdown. -h: halt after shutdown. -P: halt action is to turn off power. -H: halt action is to just halt. -f: do a 'fast' reboot (skip fsck). -F: Force fsck on reboot. -n: do not go through "init" but go down real fast. -c: cancel a running shutdown. -t secs: delay between warning and kill signal. ** the "time" argument is mandatory! (try "now") ** Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: try to call "/sbin/shutdown -p now" Actual Results: you will get: shutdown: invalid option -- 'p' Expected Results: Computer should shutdown
Comment 1 Phil Miller 2011-04-06 17:35:44 UTC
I forgot to add that you will land in tty1 with /sbin/shutdown -p now
Comment 2 Christoph Feck 2011-04-06 18:19:44 UTC
Is there a command that works both on Linux as well as FreeBSD (see bug 250989)?
Comment 3 Antonis K 2011-04-06 21:34:24 UTC
'shutdown -h now' should work on both linux and freebsd
Comment 4 Daniele Cocca 2011-04-07 00:56:31 UTC
IIRC, "shutdown -P -h now" should work on BSD too.
Comment 5 Phil Miller 2011-04-07 02:52:29 UTC
Well it is a little trickier than that. Here the manual of shutdown on freebsd: http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?query=shutdown&sektion=8 They have no capital P and it seems they need -p to power it down. Only -h won't do it ... or am I wrong?
Comment 6 Andre Woebbeking 2011-04-07 18:43:29 UTC
What about "halt -p"? That seems to exist on both platforms. On my Debian Sid it's in /sbin. Is it the same location on freebsd?
Comment 7 Paweł 2011-04-07 23:19:47 UTC
The same problem here. Solved by "shutdown -P -h now". Btw. you have much bigger user base on Linux than on freebsd, so why Linux users have to suffer from this?

Comment 9 Phil Miller 2011-04-08 15:20:42 UTC
Can somebody point me to the setting where this gets defined: kdebase/workspace/kdm/kcm/kdm-shut.cpp: shutdown_lined->setUrl(KUrl(HALT_CMD));

Comment 12 Phil Miller 2011-04-08 20:24:54 UTC
I have to re-open this. shutdown -P now does nothing: [phil@chakra-desktop buildroot]$ sudo shutdown -P now shutdown: -H and -P flags can only be used along with -h flag. Usage: shutdown [-akrhPHfFnc] [-t sec] time [warning message] -a: use /etc/shutdown.allow -k: don't really shutdown, only warn. -r: reboot after shutdown. -h: halt after shutdown. -P: halt action is to turn off power. -H: halt action is to just halt. -f: do a 'fast' reboot (skip fsck). -F: Force fsck on reboot. -n: do not go through "init" but go down real fast. -c: cancel a running shutdown. -t secs: delay between warning and kill signal. ** the "time" argument is mandatory! (try "now") ** Either you change it to /sbin/shutdown -P -h now or as it was to /sbin/halt or /sbin/shutdown -h now.
Comment 13 Oswald Buddenhagen 2011-04-08 20:48:42 UTC
oh, so this is just a modifier and not an actual command. that explains the difference to the BSD syntax.

Pushed by ossi into branch 'KDE/4.6'. actually, it wants -h -P, because -P is just a modifier FAIL ...
