Lmde hangs when shutting down

Postby lleiria on Tue Dec 28, 2010 10:25 pm

Since I installed lmde in an old toshiba satellite laptop, I never reached to shut it down totally. It allwys hangs somewhere. First it was when shutting down samba daemon; but las time it was when shutting down avahi daemon.. It freezes and I have to use the power button. Any ideas?

have you checked your log files?

Either > Menu > System Tools > Log File Viewer then possibly user.log, but not sure

or you could search from the command line.
Code: Select all
sudo cat /var/log/*.log | grep shut

you might substitute shut with halt, samba or avahi (you'll probably get a large output from avahi)

You should get something like
Code: Select all
