EOL mirrors

Mirrors for EOL (End of Lifetime, discontinued) openSUSE and SuSE releases are still around. While it is recommended to upgrade to the newest versions is some cases you just want to download a package or two. Use these mirrors for those cases:

Thinkpad W520 opensuse 12.1

Upon shutdown freezes just before poweroff.

Shutdown methods:

halt -p ; failed
/sbin/poweroff ; failed
shutdown -h -P now ; WORKS !

Using systemd ; switching to sysvinit might help.

http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Most_annoying_bugs_12.1

SOLUTION:
In /usr/share/kde4/config/kdm/kdmrc put the above shutdown command in HaltCmd This is supposed to be the default, but apparantly that got changed (due to systemd?)
switched to sysvinit ; install package sysvinit-init
