Kernel 2.6.16 "shutdown -h now" wont power off

Post by adr3nal1n » Wed May 13, 2009 10:48 am

Hi Guys,

I recently compiled kernel 2.6.16 (with xbox patch applied),

Everything works ok except for "shutdown -h now" which will shutdown and turn off the xbox under kernel 2.4.32 but under kernel 2.6.16 it just shutsdown but doesn't power off. I have also tried "shutdown -hP now" and this doesn't work either.

Anyone else run into this problem and maybe have a fix for it?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Check your config to make sure you selected "X86_XBOX".

Hi Shallax,

I checked my config and it was indeed compiled with CONFIG_X86_XBOX=y

I have found the fix to this but cannot post the URL to it as the forum tells me "Your account is too new to make such a post."

So it looks like I can't share the fix!

Sorry, that's a necessity to stop spambots.

I'm sure you have other ways to share the fix with us.
