if I run 'init 5' on an x86 sol8 box it does not actually power down the
system. The man page says that it will do so if possible. What factors
affect whether the power down is possible or not?
Most likely it doesn't conform to the ACPI standard. What kind of PC is it?Quote:

Does anybody know if this works on Solaris 8? I don't want to get wordy,
but the following information helps give an idea of the env.
Have compiled ext2fs from source and done:
# cp <ext2fsdir>/i386/ext2fs /usr/kernel/fs
# cp <ext2fsdir>/i386/mount /usr/lib/fs/ext2fs
Created entry in /etc/vfstab for the linux root partition, which is the
2nd partition on the first ide disk on my system. When mounting the linux
partition I get:
bash-2.03# mount /linux
mount: /dev/dsk/c0d0p2 is not a Linux filesystem.
This is the output of fdisk /dev/rdsk/c0d0p0:
Total disk size is 25228 cylinders
Cylinder size is 1008 (512 byte) blocks
Partition Status Type Start End Length %

3 EXT-DOS 20320 21339 1020 4
4 Linux native 21340 25212 3873 15
The machine runs W2K on the first partition, and the extended and 4th
primary partitions contain other linux filesystems and swap space.
Solaris is on the entire /dev/rdsk/c1d1p0 disk. The version of linux is
RedHat 6.2 (Piglet) Beta software. Perhaps it is Linux that is the
Any suggestions appreciated.
