Shutdown already running?

Shutdown already running?

Post by Andrew R. Bern » Fri, 19 Jul 1996 04:00:00



I've just installed the latest libraries/init as specified in the 2.0.4
Changes file, and now whenever I try to shut my machine down (shutdown -r
now) I get a "shutdown already running" message. If I try cancelling with a
shutdown -c nothing happens. Any ideas?

I got this message a while ago. I just went into /etc/rc.d/ and run the
rc.6 script. However, this won't be a good solution if the message
appears every time.

You have managed to get a shutdown.pid file in your /etc/ directory.
Delete this and all should be fine.

Actually, I think he needs to get the latest sysvinit package.....I had the same
problem after upgrading to kernel 2.0.0.

Did you ever receive an answer to this?  After upgrading my kernel to
2.0.1, I get this also.

1. Cannot shutdown: shutdown already running (with kernel 1.2.13)

Have just upgraded to 1.2.13 ELF from 1.2.8 a.out. Initially
I could shutdown just fine, but a coupel of days later
now I find that even just after booting and logging on,
I cannot shutdown (using shutdown -r now).
I get the message in the title. I cannot
shutdown with ctrol-alt-del either. That seems to have been trapped.
Can't find anything in the man pages or the Linux Book.

        Any suggestions?

        Thanks Joe Mack
