Sabayon 11/Gnome won't shutdown or reboot [Solved]

Postby FaulesArschloch » Fri Apr 19, 2013 16:17

Well, since yesterday's update my sabayon won't neither shutdown nor reboot. Didn't change that much on the system except for installing kernel 3.8 with kernel-switcher. but i've done this a few days before and had no issues with. this happens on both kernels, the 3.7 and the 8.8 one. i don't receive any error message whatsoever so i am kind of clueless where the problem lies. it just stays with the shutdown screen (and a cursor blinking on top left).

i'm sorry if this is the wrong sub-forum but i just didn't know where to put it ;)

i appreciate your help! :)

EDIT: says "cannot execute /sbin/halt" when i go into verbose mode while shutting down

I had the same problem with KDE; the sysvint directory had disappeared. I was able to fix with a reinstall of sysvint via Rigo.

you need to just reinstall sysvinit:

Code: Select all
equo install sysvinit


see bug 4164: http://bugs.sabayon.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4164

Happy to find this thread.
I just updated today and like others the found that /sbin/halt and /sbin/reboot and others had been changed to Broken Links together with many other files such as grub2-install. Links pointing to /init.d/sysvinit/ which had disappeared as others have reported.

The reinstall of sysvinit seems to have repaired all.
