init 5 doesn't power down a x86 sol8 box

Post by Shane McDanie » Sat, 04 May 2002 04:55:37



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?

1. ext2fs doesn't see linux fs on Sol8/x86

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.
bash-2.03#

This is the output of fdisk /dev/rdsk/c0d0p0:

             Total disk size is 25228 cylinders
             Cylinder size is 1008 (512 byte) blocks

                                               Cylinders
      Partition   Status    Type          Start   End   Length    %
      =========   ======    ============  =====   ===   ======   ===
          1       Active    IFS: NTFS         0  10152    10153     40
          2                 Linux native   10152  20320    10169     40
          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
problem?

Any suggestions appreciated.
