poweroff problem - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Hi, I have installed Redhat Linux 9 on a machine with a Gigabyte GA-8IPE1000 (Pro) mainboard with the Intel 865PE chipset. Everything works fine. But the machine don't turn off after shutdown. I has recompiled the kernel and activated the ACPI-support. This had not the effect I had hoped for. Do anybody knows a solution? Thanks Lars...

    If your system supports apm, loading the apm driver module should help:

    modprobe apm

    or add apm to /etc/modules to load it automatically at startup.

    If you want to use acpi, make sure you load the acpi drivers if they are
    compiled as modules.

    best regards

    Sometimes APM works where ACPI doesn't. ACPI has it all over APM (is
    preferred), but situations like yours sometimes come up.

    BTW in your kernel compilation, be sure to activate only one of APM|ACPI,
    not both.

    Also, try looking into the logs to see if there is a reason for this that
    led to a log entry. Also, to increase the chances for uncovering the cause,
    choose the ACPI debugging message option in the kernel configuration.

    You can probably do a similar thing using ACPI, and can almost certainly do
    it using grub.
