Mint 12 KDE hangs on logout/shutdown/restart

Postby BostonPeng on Thu May 10, 2012 9:52 am

I installed the latest Mint KDE in a VirtualBox so I can run the Webilder app for getting new wallpaper images but any time I try to end my session the screen dims but I have to manually open a terminal and run sudo reboot (or use the Run Command Interface (RCI) and run kdesudo reboot). It doesn't matter if I try to simply log out, shutdown or restart, and it doesn't matter if I use the application launcher, a right click on my desktop, or use the RCI to initiate the end of the session.

I can't see anyone else having the issue and I can't tell what may be borked on my system so feel free to let me know what further information y'all need to identify the culprit.

for me years ago it was clamav updater.

Hmmm, I saw freshclam and killed it, but my virtual machine still hung when I tried to log out. I'll have to keep hunting for a culprit.

mabye check with virtualbox.website or forum. I dont use it but wonder if Vb is trying to close something thats used by the computer. seems unlikely but might be a glitch. How about trying to disconnect from internet in VB before closing it.
Just a wild guess

I saw there was an update for my Nvidia driver and after I installed it I had no problems with my shutdown, which is a good thing because I can't see how to prevent freshclam from running. Removing ClamTK isn't an option I want due to some of the files I get from friends on Windows. Hopefully my problem has been resolved with this update. I may try running VB without forcing freshclam stopped and see if it confirms my hypothesis. Thanks for the assists phd7.

Actually the problem was resolved once, and then I got the hangs again. I haven't gotten a chance to hunt down other possible culprits yet, and I'm hesitant to remove clam since I use it fairly often. I have disabled any automatic settings for clam so I don't know why freshclam insists on running every session.

Well if it IS (and this is just a guess) a running process, maybe take a screenshot of your processes before shutting down and then you can compare screenshot between a working shutdown and non-working. maybe sort by CPU usage descending?
