[Moderator note: fixed title. Krnl looks wrong and there is no need to save bytes here. -Hu]

Installed a new kernel (gentoo-sources 4.14.38) yesterday beside 4.9.95 and almost everything works just fine, Nvidia 1080 ti and nvme, but that computer won't shut down. When shutting down from Xfce4 the screen goes blank with a blinking cursor in left top corner and i have to force a shutdown via power button on the computer.

With kernel 4.9.95 everything works as expected.

Anyone had similar experience with that kernel (and perhaps Nvidia, xfce and nvme)

Edit: Thanks for the typo fixed, it was unintentional.

Workaround for me is to do a
Code:
#shutdown -h now


It's not a gentoo stable kernel so i leave it at that. I have the 4.9.95 as fallback if anything else goes wrong.

Don't know what the fix is, but it's not just you, and it's not just that kernel. I occasionally run into a condition where my computer will exit Xfce back to VT1 and just sit there, and I have to push the computer's power button to complete the shutdown.

It may partly be due to Xfce's interaction with the kernel, but that's just a thought I had.

True, anyway, i have a Xeon Skylake Workstation, so I reinstalled Gentoo on that one yesterday, works like charm. Running i3 now and Kernel 4.16.3-gentoo with nvidia 396 (Quadro P1000) and EFistub. It's crazy fast. I'm flying :)

OpenRC and Mate. Never had this trouble with any kernel. I think the problem is in XFCE.

Does XFCE has it's own display manager like Gnome and KDE? I use xdm with Mate. I vaguely recall a problem like that with gdm and Gnome2 years ago.

No, I meant xdm,kdm, slim ... So it's lightdm. I never used that. Unless I'm using it on the Pi.

Yeah, lightdm can seem a bit wonky sometimes, but once you get a handle on how it works, it's pretty nice, and more flexible than slim.

You might try to login from another computer and watch dmesg and the system log as you try to shut down from xfce.
