SubjectRe: Shutdown and power off on a multi-processor machine
Compile a kernel with apm support and add the following to your




I too am having trouble powering off and rebooting an SMP machine. It
is a Tyan Tiger 230. I have tried to report this a few times with
little to no response. The last kernel that worked for me in this
respect was 2.4.6-ac2. I have tried linus' and alan's kernels both with
no success. I have tried configuring all kernel with APM soft-power
off, real-mode power off (I enable power-off even though the rest of APM
is broken on SMP), ACPI (multiple setups), and nothing at all. None of
these kernel/configuration combos allow me to shutdown or reboot my
machine. I would like to be able to and I know the board still works
because Windows 2000/XP (even though I hate using them) both manage to
shutdown/reboot the machine properly. I have everything I can think of
copiled in statically instead of as modules and also have PNPBIOS enable
in the kernel and the BIOS. Any help would be appreciated.
