Debian Jessie: Unable to reboot

Postby Michele13 » 2015-04-18 23:18

Hi everyone, I'm surprised that this bug has not been already solved. When I reboot debian jessie the computer freezes when it says restarting system. I've just done a net install, I'm using a 32-bit kernel with pae support (the kernel version is 3.16). I've encountered even in another distro (based on slackware) that has the kernel version 3.17. They said that the problem was kernel related. How can I give more info about my problem? I'd relly like to solve this problem before Jessie becomes stable. Maybe a kernel upgrade to 3.19 is sufficient?

EDIT: the problem is also present in the Jessie installer

EDIT (2): Here's more datails about my system.

Code: Select all
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile 915GM/PM/GMS/910GML Express Processor to DRAM Controller (rev 03)
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 915GM/GMS/910GML Express Graphics Controller (rev 03)

02:04.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2200BG [Calexico2] Network Connection (rev 05)
02:06.0 CardBus bridge: ENE Technology Inc CB1410 Cardbus Controller (rev 01)
02:08.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation PRO/100 VE Network Connection (rev 03)


to reboot the system I used "sudo reboot". I did a minimal installation using a net install ISO loaded using the HdMedia kernel and initrd, with debconf priority to low (so it was an advanced install),
during the reboot I see the following message

Code: Select all
watchdog watchdog0: watchdog did not stop!
reboot: Restarting system

Hi Michele, you'll probably get better help if you post your problem here
viewforum.php?f=17

This sub forum is just for discussing development processes, not for bug/problem reports.

Same problem with Jessie!!! I've tried Debian Stretch and Unstable too, but the problem still persists. Only Wheezy allows me to reboot. Did you solve it? :roll: Thanks

Try this:

Edit the file at /etc/default/grub (as root) and add this snippet to the "GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX" line:
Code: Select all
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="reboot=bios"

Then run:
Code: Select all
# update-grub

If that doesn't work, try "reboot=acpi" instead.

Thank you! Nothing with "reboot=bios", but "reboot=acpi" worked at the first reboot. At the second reboot it didn't work anymore :(

Code: Select all
systemctl reboot -i

It doesn't work :(

I think it's a bug!
Bios=acpi parameter and then "update-grub" has worked for me, but only at the first reboot. That's really strange...

What happens exactly and what is the verbatim terminal output after you run that command?

From tty, always the same result:
Code: Select all
watchdog watchdog0: watchdog did not stop!
reboot: Restarting system

but the system doesn't restart!
From a terminal emulator, like xterm or lxterminal, when I run reboot commands I just see a black screen with a white underscore :(

The watchdog message is unimportant.

Have you tried the kernel parameters I listed above?

Have you tried `systemctl reboot -i`?

Yes, of course!
My last post was related to the command you've suggested (systemctl reboot -i), and, as you can see above, I've tried both the parameters 'reboot=bios' and 'reboot=acpi'. In the first case I got the same black screen, in the second case (reboot=acpi and then update-grub) reboot worked only at the first time...when I tried to reboot for a second time I got the black screen again.

Sorry, I didn't realise it was you -- I answer a *lot* of queries...

I'm out of ideas here.
