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.


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
