      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

boot and shutdown stop until "enter" key

Recommended Posts



I have seen this issue with Mandriva repeatedly for years, it comes and goes, and finally has come and stayed on my Gigabyte GA-MA785G-UD3H quad core Athlon based main system.


One of the fixes from the 2009 errata fixed it, I added "clocksource=jiffies" to the boot args and all seems OK.


The issue happens on shutdown as well... Just holding down the "enter" key tickles whatever the issue is and it continues...


Note to self--- try a USB keyboard.

(Temp test---You'll pry my IBM model "M" from my cold dead hands ;-) )
