    Default Can't poweroff/halt

    It may sound stupid but I can't poweroff or halt my computer with backtrack 5 (installed on persistant usb 4GB).

    Well if I logout and then type in:
    sudo halt
    sudo poweroff
    the red backtrack 5 (desktop wallpaper-)sreen appears and nothing happens.
    If I press "del" or "F12" now, it turns to the textmode but a bunch of errors appear and then it shuts down/halts. But next time I want to boot backtrack, endless errors appear.
    I have to poweroff my computer by holding my "power botton" a few seconds. Cuz otherwise backtrack 5 doesn't work with the next boot...

    here the errors:
    "number"EXTZ-fs (loop1): error: ext2_lookup: deleted inode referenced: "number"
    I really don't know what to do. Plz help.

    Default Re: Can't poweroff/halt

    Are you entering those commands from the konsole, or from the shell prompt (after logging out of X)? I'm using BTRC2, and getting weird errors trying to shut down without exiting the graphical display first. It produces errors on the next boot too.

    Have you tried 'reboot now' and 'shutdown now'? It'll probably get you the same results, but it's worth a shot.
