Today I installed KDE Minime to my Dell P4 with HyperThreading desktop to get it close to the installed Bonsai for comparisons and also viewing to localize it to French later. I have done a list of the packages installed to Bonsai, a list of thoses installed to KDE Minime, and came to the conclusion there was not much to add.
I have followed the example of Minime and updated initscripts and mylivecd to the ones which are not in stable actually. I checked the file inittab after the update because the post message said there was a /etc/inittab.rpmnew, but there wasn't one so I wondered if something went wrong there. I looked at the differences, there was a very small one, in one the line for booting to rl 3 was commented, in the other it was not commented. And I have checked also the file rc.local, as this is the one where the zram config stand. So I noticed that the line that was before in /etc/rc.d/rc.local :
is not anymore in the new rc.local.
I don't know if this is important or not. I tried to shutdown KDE, and also earlier, Zen Mini, with the ConsoleKit command line used in Bonsai and other Openbox standalone versions : it does shut them down without any trouble.
Here I am summing up. You must understand that at each new stage, change, addition in this I did a shutdown. (And yesterday I also updated libupower1 to libupower-glib1, because the number versions were not matching with the new upower arrived in the updates. I had also downloaded the sources to see how it is organised as well as checked in the pclinuxos upower src rpm and libupower-glib1 rpm) (all which is available... )
I have checked the services started, and compared them; I installed at, to get atd, as in Minime; The result is so : whatever I did, I still reboots after approximately 20 seconds as long as I keep the default options on the kernel line, which is "acpi=on". If I remove it, it does shutdown cleanly.
On the thread for testing it, the last who came with a feedback is djohnston, and several options he used just don't give any other result than a reboot after shutdown, on one of his machines.
The choice is so : I present Bonsai to Texstar with the latest 18.104.22.168.pclos3.bfs kernel, and thoses who get trouble with shutdown try to add or remove options, or I reinstall the older kernel that was working well for all ?
Thoses who say "Openbox is the only one where it does not work" just will pass and get Lxde, Kde, any other version where all works... or help find where the problem comes from, because Openbox and Bonsai are built on etjr's cli.iso itself built directly from the rpms of the repositories. It does not contain any special trick apart from zram, and this one once removed the problem stays, so it cannot be the guilty one.
I'll make a few more tests within one or two days, in the meanwhile I would like you to tell me what solution you prefer.
I will also be back with a full diff that I will post at pastebin, for who would be interested to see the differences in the installed packages.
PS: here is the diff:http://pastebin.com/kq3BTgqW
Since, I have added pclinuxos-menu-messages and kernel-22.214.171.124-pclos3 to give it a try.
