Shutdown problem

Post by cdomi »

Hello,

The shutdown process of my laptop doesn't work totally. The process is beginning and stop with this message.

"linux mint 14 nadia paprika (nom de la machine) tty
paprika login: modem-manager [809]:<info> Caught signal 15, shutting down..."

I didn't see any solutions on web to solve this problem. Do you have any idea?
If I turn off the wifi before turning off, I have the same message but the laptop stops after a few seconds. It is an alternative but not satisfactory solution.

From France
best regards

Domi

Hi,
After reading this bugs report :
https://bugs.launchpad.net/modemmanager/+bug/893248
and
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour ... bug/869635

I've adding the line:

Code: Select all

stop on runlevel [6]
into the file /etc/init/network-manager.conf

But that didn't solve the problem for me.

I am also having problems shutting down. I log out, and it gets to the screen with the Linux Mint logo, and it just parks there forever, until I physically turn it off. This is a Sony Vaio VPCSA laptop, running 64-bit Linux Mint 15.

I'm having this issue, too. Aspire 540-1284. Using Ubuntu 12.10 recently updated. I tell it to shut down and it ends up by taking me back to the log in screen. Just downloaded Mint 13 LTS as considering installing it.

Hi,
I've also read this http://www.hecticgeek.com/2012/10/speed ... wn-process
I tested the proposed solution (Step 1 & 2).
Doesn't work for me !
I tested too, the proposed solution on post #3 and #8....without success !
I didn't dare the last solution "update" ie apt-get autoremove modemmanager.conf !

I also tried to comment this line "# start on starting network-manager" in the file "/ etc / init / modemmanager.conf" but without success too.

I understand that he must come to "stop" the daemon "modem-manager" before extinguishing the network-manager.

I continue my research and test various

A last comment about this problem.

If i switch off the wifi card (Fn+F11) before shutdown, the laptop extinction does work normally.
That's a alternative for skip the bug !

Have a good day

Thank you, Domi. I tried your Fn + F11 trick and it worked! Not only that, but I tried shutting down normally after I rebooted and it worked without the Fn + F11. I am going to assume that it's fixed and will report back if I find out otherwise.

Again, thank you.

Hello, I'm new here, but luckily I've managed to find the solution, at least for those for whom the problem is wifi-card-driven, and not an issue of the cpu.
The idea that the wifi-card is at fault came from this thread, however the fn+f11 didn't work for me, it brought to mind something else.
I've noticed, that in the driver manager my wifi-card is listed as not functioning, despite the fact that I've obviously had a working wifi connection, so I just passed on it, because a habit from windows is "if it works it works, don't ask needless questions and don't try to better what is already good" in fear, of, well... damaging it.

But enough of the introduction:

The drivers were not installed and the card was listed as unactive.
So I simply installed the drivers (nothing easier with driver manager).
The internet still works, and now the system shuts down properly.
(For the record, my card is Broadcom BCM 4313 Wireless LAN Controller, my laptop is Toshiba Satellite L-650, my system is Linux Mint 15 with Cinnamon Desktop).

So the old saying remains valid, "have you tried turning it off and on again? and have you tried installing the latest drivers?"

Btw, you can't imagine, how happy I am that on during my first week with mint, I've managed to avoid messing with system files... gosh. :mrgreen:
Toshiba Satellite L650-1NU: Core i5-480M (2.66); Mobility Radeon 5650 (1024); 4 GB DDR3; 500 GB HDD (mint double booted, occupies 60, win7 on the remainder);
