You would think that if someone had used computers
since the age of four, they would be reasonably competent in shutting down a computer. AH, but there's a catch
. I have been using Macs
machines all my life.
Start->Shut down->Turn off computer->Ok
Shutting down a Linux
machine was something completely different (Red Hat
6.2, if you must know).
Ok, command line
... this is ok, I mean, I'm good with DOS
, I can do command line. Alright..
Ok, maybe not.
Let's just read these instructions.
Ok, I have to add the "-h" for "halt"
Specify time? I want it to shutdown now! Let's try saying 0 minutes.
shutdown -h 0
Bloody heck!I read the onscreen help a bit more
OH, I just have to type "now"!
shutdown -h now
Redhat does all its shutdown stuff, until it arrives at a point where it says "Power down". I shut it off.
