Shutdown Issues

Post by egghead » Sat Jul 19, 2008 12:46

Is anyone else having issues with ALSA not unloading correctly when halt/shutdown or init 6 is called on x86_64?

Running a halt or init 6 results in a shutdown that hangs when ALSA tries to unload. When I use the gnome logout->shutdown I lose the panel and desktop but the X shutdown hands, doing a ctrl+alt+backspace restarts X and initializes level 0.

This is on 3.5 loop 2.

Try with 3.5 final. We have no reason to support betas when the final has been released.

Whats the best way to upgrade ti 3,5 from beta? Just the normal Gentoo make world process? This is actually the pilot machine I setup a few weeks before 3.5.

What database does equo depend on? The update world failed because it couldn't a download an updated version of secondlife. I removed secondlife from the system all together and did a equo cache clean | equo world --update 3.5 and its still trying to download an update for secondlife.

Ok i got around the problem with secondlife and the eupo world completed. However I still have the shutdown issue.

Also while booting the system I noticed that we get a "ls: No such file or directly" after the LVMs have been activated.

Right, so finally had time to investigate the problem myself and it looks like a gdm issue and not a ALSA one.... it just happens the ALSA umounts before gdm terminates so it looks like ALSA was hanging not gdm!

extract from /var/log/messages
Jul 12 02:23:24 localhost gdm[9437]: CRITICAL: gdm_connection_close: assertion `conn != NULL' failed

Jul 12 02:23:24 localhost gdm[8516]: WARNING: gdm_cleanup_children: Slave crashed, killing its children

After exhausting the sabayon form and bugtracker, I turned to the gentoo bugtrack and found a various bug with similar symptoms none know however identified the root cause or provided a suitable work around.

Is anyone else experiencing this?

If you had done the proper install-from-scratch 3.5final maybe more people will be talking to you.
And I might agree with you that alsa is the problem - but as it is I'm not sure.
