gloria x64 thinkad r61 doesn't shutdown solved

Postby la_monda on Wed Jun 24, 2009 5:48 pm

i installed x64 edition gloria after using the 32bit since the day it was released. the 32bit version worked perfectly.
in the 64bit edition though, when you shutdown or restart the system after the mint logo with the unloading progress bar, the screen goes white and starts slowly to fade out with all tones of grey resulting gradually to black but the laptop doesn't shut down. in the 32 bit edition the white screen goes simultaneously black and shuts down at the same time. Any thoughts on that???

Please always include details of the hardware when the problem might be hardware related
Post your lspci (l is a lower case L)
I think this may be a problem with hardware and drivers

Which nvidia driver do you use?
There is a 64 bit restricted driver for your card

That should take care of that you have the right driver (a 64 bit nvidia)
Let's make it possible for you to see what happens when you shut down
Code: Select all
gksu gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst

Be careful
On the line that controls your normal boot remove quiet splash
Save and reboot
Now you don't see a splash when you boot and when you shut down
The line is probably now
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.28-11-generic root=/dev/sdax ro quiet splash
and should be changed to
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.28-11-generic root=/dev/sdax ro
where x in sdax is the number of your partition
