Could anyone help me with which log file I need to read in order to see why my new 2011 installation won't shut down cleanly please?

It starts to shut down as one would expect, but then stops completely at the Plymouth screen (the circle animation stops).  Only a hard shutdown using the power key then gets me out of this.

I've had a look through some of the logs in /var for clues, but I don't really know what I'm looking for (perhaps I should be posting in the beginners section, even though I've used Pardus for 3 years now!)

Happy to provide any hardware information if required.  Nvidia graphics card installed, but it does this with either the proprietary driver or the Nouveau one.

Many thanks!

Do you have any NFS mounts?

I have seen similar problems in the past on some Debian systems where the NFS server had gone away before the client shut down (since this was 4 or more years ago, I don't recall the precise details).

Nope- no nfs mounts.

Still scratching my head over this one.  Tried a few things, like changing the video drivers, but it does it every time, If I shutdown in verbose mode, without the Plymouth splash, it stops/jams just after it unmounts the mounted drives though, so you may be onto something.

I'll have a play, now, and report back

Whooo!

So I unmounted my fat32 drive (my data drive, shared with windows) before rebooting and hey presto it worked.  I mounted the drive through the gui in disk manager.  fsab looks like this:

UUID=4505-6C39 /media/DATA\040DISK vfat utf8,quiet,dmask=007,gid=6,shortname=mixed,fmask=117 0 0

I have to confess I've no idea what the second part of that means (dmask, gid, shortname, fmask).  I'll have an experiment and let you know.

Going to have to go out now.  I'll have another look in the morning.  It's definitely something to do with that mounted vfat drive.
