I was wondering if anyone else has any experience with this.
A colleague at work recently upgraded from F12 to 13 on his Dell
Inspirion 1545 with an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4330. Everything seems
to be working just fine, except, when he initiates a shutdown it hangs
at the end.
I think it might have something to do with the opensource driver,
because when he had the proprietary driver installed from rpmfusion
for F12 there was no such issue. When he had the opensource driver
installed in F12 before the proprietary driver became available, his
computer experienced the same issue. Now that there is no proprietary
driver available for F13 again he is forced to use the opensource
driver. Mind you, the performance has improved immensely, but he still
can't shutdown the computer correctly.
I have experienced this too on occasion (fresh install of f13 +
kde-redhat-unstable both with and without proprietary nvidia drivers).
Not managed to narrow it down far enough to get around to a bug
report. I think it's Plasma Workspace seems to crash with a
segmentation fault during exit but by that point of the shutdown it
seems to be unable to display the drkonqi dialog box reliably.
Sometimes it is shown but is unresponsive. Most times the screen just
goes blank and then hangs. Switching to another terminal (Alt+F2) and
killing drkonqi allows shutdown to continue. After that it seems to
shut down fine a few times before starting to hang again. that's as
far as i have got in the investigation.
