System shutdowm hangs towards the end

Postby addiction » Tue Mar 19, 2013 1:50 pm


I have Linux Mint Mate 14 installed.

I am having an issue with shutting down my system. I get to click on the shutdown button alright, but after the desktop environment exits, the shutdown process gets stuck at this one point every time where there are a bunch of command line outputs printed (they seem like kernel debug messages to me).

I have been able to capture some of the output. I would really appreciate it if someone could help me out here.

Below is what I get as output.

[ 2817.828019] ieee80211 phy0: >w10: psmdebug 0xx00c99362, phydebug 0x00010000, psm_brc 0x0300
[ 2817.856505] ieee80211 phy0: >w10: brcms_b_corereset: dma_txreset[3]: cannot stop dma

Maybe this topic can help you:

The problem seems to be wireless related. Turning the wireless off through the hardware switch worked for me, but that has to be done manually every time and is error-prone.
Another solution is to add the following line to ~/.logout:

Code: Select all

rfkill block wifi

The script ~/.logout is run whenever the user logs out. This line will turn off the wireless network. Running with unblock instead of block should turn it back on.
