On 2011-05-11 benefici offered the following:
My desktop PC (with openSUSE 11.4) does not shutdown completely at times.
This is very worrying as one of the steps missed is the unmounting of file
systems. Then of course on the next boot-up the file systems are found
unclean. Unfortunately I have also lost data because of this. I started
collecting evidence about the problem by making video recordings of
shutdown messages. I compared a complete shutdown with an incomplete one
and found that the messages up to "Running /etc/init.d/halt.local" were
present in both videos (in a different order). Then the following messages
were missing from the incomplete shutdown:
Turning off swap files
Set Hardware Clock to the current System Time
Unmounting file systems
none has been unmounted
/dev/md6 has been unmounted
/dev/md7 has been unmounted
Shutting down MD Raid
After that both videos finished with the same messages:
Sending all processes the TERM signal...
Sending all processes the KILL signal...
The system will be halted immediately.
The above two videos were recorded about 2 hours apart, first the complete
then the incomplete one. I did nothing special in between - used digiKam,
checked my e-mail etc. I did not update my system or changed any system
files. Any ideas how to track down / fix this problem?
Check out [Bug 590744] Unclean ext3 after online update . This and a related
[Bug 450196] PATA ext3 - recovering journal on / on first boot on new
These seem to be pretty much the same as you describe. I never had the
benefit of a
"video" of the shutdown messages but I have a feeling your video information
valuable in troubleshooting the above related bugs (which also affect ext4, and
probably other FS types). In any event, if you add a comment to the 2nd bug
1st has been marked as a duplicate of the 2nd I believe) there may be a clue
provide that helps resolve those, and possibly your problem.
