Sometimes it does, sometimes it halts sometimes it hangs. I think that has something todo with init. It uses /dev/initctl which is a symlink to /initrd/dev/initctl because we need write access to some devices. I plan to write a script that performs the steps done by halt or reboot. We have no unmount script on the bootcd too. Bye Achim
