fail to reboot system

I don't know what happened since I installed fedora 16.
the command reboot is failed to reboot the system.
when I used the command, then keyboard and mouse lost respose and the screen stay at here, no chage until you using the poweroff buttion in machine.

I think there should be some things to do with command reboot.

So please tell me what happened and how to solve it.

thank you!

Re: fail to reboot system

You might try 'ctrl-alt-F3' first to go to CLI, then log in, 'su -' and 'reboot' to see where it's hanging.

I have done what you said, but there is no information show, just like reboot in the xwindows.

Re: fail to reboot system

That IS strange! Actually, 'reboot' works even without signing in as root, just open a terminal and type 'reboot' and it starts with "stopping ... systems", then a quick series of lines and the reboot takes place. No idea why you're not able to do that. I assume 'poweroff' also fails?

No, poweroff is OK, just reboot.

Re: fail to reboot system

Out of ideas if there's no clues on logs to check. I suppose you could file a bugzilla on it, but without backup data, there's little to go on. Personally, I'd simply use the poweoff command to shut it down and then restart the machine to accomplish the same thing.
