I have a fresh installation of Ubuntu Server. "reboot" works, but shutdown fails on the
* Killing all remaining processes... step. I am using:
sudo shutdown now
After the failure, indicated by
[fail] (with "fail" in red), I get this message:
* will now switch to single-user mode
with no other error messages. The user is root after the program exits.
Any ideas about how to trouble-shoot this, or what the problem might be?
The Ubuntu version is 11.10 and I ran
sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude dist-upgrade before this.
