Well... from the ignorance is bliss department. I have been unplugging my basix200bt and 400bt for a couple months when I need a quick reboot. (Doing driver development.) So far I haven't had any problems, but maybe I have just been lucy.

Hi all,

I would not unplug the power that way... not sure if this corrupted my image... but it was the last thing i did before not booting again... so i always do a poweroff and wait until the system halted message
cheers

Actually, part of halting is shutting down the network, which does, in
fact turn the link LED off.

Executing

/etc/init.d/S40network stop

also turns the link LED off. Interestingly enough, manually executing:

modprobe -r smc91x

causes the following crash:

Device 'smc91x.0' does not have a release() function, it is broken and
must be fixed.
