Re: [opensuse] systemd shutdown warning?

I recently upgraded to 12.1, including systemd. I have a machine
configured that powers off automatically at certain types, using
crontab. In the past, I could put in the crontab "shutdown -h +30",
and then I would get warning messages on the console as the shutdown
approaches. With systemd, shutdown gets scheduled, but no warnings
appear anywhere. The system just shuts down when the time comes.

Is there a way to reproduce this warning message behavior? The man
page just says "shutdown is for compatibility only", and systemctl
page does not offer any options about scheduling or warnings.

Either switch back to sysvinit. But be aware there is a sysvinit bug
open which causes only some systems to need some extra time at the end
of the shutdown process.

Bug #725917

Problem: System is switched from sysvinit to systemd during upgrade.

Workaround: is to install the sysvinit-init package. As soon as its
install gets acknowledged the removal of the systemd-sysvinit package
will be suggested.

Or consider to check the same with the recently released systemd
packages to the 12.1 update channel. I got version 37 release 3.8.1

If you have to file a bugreport be this nice to report the bug ID back
to this thread to establish a cross reference. In the bug you might
also add a pointer to the listarchive at

And my congratulation for having filed message #1 in March 2012. :)
