Bug Description

After installing Feisty herd 3 from alternate on DG965MQ, the shutdown process stalls with the following error message:

Sending SIGKILL to all processes
Please stand by while rebooting the system.
[ 7673.970819] Synchronizing SCSI cache for disk sda:
[ 7674.066593] ACPI: PCI interrupt for device 0000:00:19.0 disabled

Pressing ctrl-c doesn't have any effect, the machine needs to be reset.

Please make sure you have the latest BIOS. I know I saw issues on my 965 mobo before updating the BIOS.

Also, provide dmidecode.

Does this only happen after install, or is it any reboot? Can you try adding each of these to the kernel command line, then reboot, and try the next till one works:


Let me know which ones work, if any. The dmidecode will allow us to add a special entry for this specific motherboard to force the reboot mode that does work.

Updating the BIOS to MQ1618P fixed the shutdown problem.

Rejecting since this isn't a kernel bug. Thanks for testing the BIOS update.
