Re: Ubuntu 11.10: Shutdown stuck Ubuntu screen
I eventually found a solution to this problem for my mythtv 11.10 system that has worked 100% for me. The problem is the network is not shutting down, this is solved by running sudo sh -c "/etc/init.d/networking stop" in the shut down sequence. I run this as part of checklogin.sh which is a mythtv script used to control shut down so it can be woken by the RTC alarm for a TV recording. I suggest putting this in the shut down sequence for a non-mythtv system and see what happens.
