F26 does not shut down power off

asked 2017-07-03 04:41:32 -0500

Macbook with Fedora 26. Fedora does not power off, screen shows blue-white fedora F and keeps visible until battery is empty. When using hard power off it still takes minutes before F26 is halted.

is f26 still beta? if so, send a bug report. I have not seen notice that F26 is stable yet.

@jaapsoft, pressing any key when you see that blue screen should show the last few messages from the shutdown process. It may include a hint at what goes wrong.

@steveebey73742, it’s indeed still in beta.

For anyone with similar issues still there hasnt been a real solution ever since, but there is a workaround here - github.

The issue is (most likely) with the broadcom driver stopping the shutdown.
