OpenSuse Shutdown -r now fails?

Post by dcipher »

Hi

When I use the Linux "shutdown -r now" the computer does not reboot. It simply logs out and displays a blank screen with the word "Fitlet". I am running OpenSuse 15.3 on a new FiteLet2 PC. Is there a method to ensure the PC can be rebooted/shutdown from the Linux console?

Thanks,
Simon

I look forward to hearing the result. We require this feature because we use the Fitlet2 with equipment in remote locations so the ability to reboot or shutdown the PC remotely is important for us.

Thanks,
Simon

Hi

We have tried reboot, systemctl reboot, init 6, shutdown -r now etc. and none of the options reboot the computer. The PC just seems to enter a halt state.

Hi

It turns out that if you change the BIOS operating system setting to Windows then the reboot function works. If you set the BIOS to Linux then the reboot does not work.

Hi

Is that something that may eventually be changed in the future because we only use Linux on these PCs? If I set the OS to Windows but actually run Linux will the reboot work? Would this cause other issues because the BIOS would not be accurately reflecting the OS that is actually running?

Thanks,
Simon
