I am using ubuntu 11.10 on my desktop (64 bit) for a long time. Few days back there was some issue with power supply and i have to shutdown my desktop using power button in hurry. Now when i am going to shutdown the desktop, the shutdown process starts and ubuntu logo and five dots comes and then it hangs. Can you tell me what went wrong in the situation of mine?
On Arch linux:
/etc/rc.local and /etc/rc.local.shutdown are good places for auto-starting scripts respectively at system startup and shutdown
Couple of questions:
Where should I add my scripts to be run at shutdown or startup
1) RHEL 6?
Since I've upgraded to 13.04, the shutdown command from the menu seldom works properly. Sometimes when I select shutdown from the menu, my system immediatelly starts to shutdown. Sometimes, the panel with the shutdow/restart buttons appear, and I can sellect shutdown and the system shuts down, sometimes selecting the shutdown button, causes a restart.
