Re: ShutDown the system

Hi Bruno,

use init 0 to shutdown the machine.
Stop all applications before.
If you want the machine to boot up to os, when it is switched on, then keep it set to boot. If however the machine has a fault, that makes it boot all the time, then it is not so good for the file system. We have all the alphas set to halt here.

greetings,

Re: ShutDown the system

shutdown command depend on the installed applications. A good starter is

# init 0

or

# shutdown -h now (or use a time frame)

If you are not sure, stop application manually and use the shutdown -h command.
Help() { FirstReadManual(urgently); Go_to_it;; }
