only clean way I have known to shutdown each VM is to issue
shutdown within the actual xterm of the virtual machine.
only type "shutdown -h now".
seems that shutdown outside of the virtual machine is
Whats the prefered way to shut a
UML down cleanly? If you issue halt through mconsole it pretty much means
killing the machine.
The cad feature allows it to
reboot like you've pressed ctrl-alt-delete, though it has to be assigned by
the UML in inittab, which can behave different on several occations depending
on the UMLs' setup. The admins of UML's should not have to change this, I
think, since it's more a host situation. The powerfail feature that is also
set in inittab maybe IS a feature that is suitable, but can that one be called
by the host?
Or maybe there's a better
alternative to the mconsole 'halt' that I should've known about?
Thanks so much for all the
