    Default Linux Shutdown Problems

    Hey,

    I'm running an FC2 system, with no X installed. When I login as root and shut the system down - with the command "shutdown now", it begins the shutdown procedure fine.

    But after it has sent processes the TERM signal, it just goes to a prompt that looks 'something' like

    sh-b2.05:

    And waits for me to type....

    Any ideas?

    I tend to use 'halt' and 'reboot' because they don't need any command line args.

    The strange prompt you are getting is from a minimum single-user (no password root level) session. It's intended for repairing the system. You could type halt to that prompt but it's quicker to do it from your normal running mode.
