  • How DO you shut Fedora Linux down???

    A confirmed Windows users for 10+ years, I borrowed a laptop from work and a copy of Redhat Fedora Linux Core 4 to learn something different, and having successfully installed the OS I can't see intuitively how you shutdown the darn thing! Too used to the Windows Start button I guess.

    Anyone able to give me some pointers?

    ETA: Oh, it's a GNOME desktop GUI btw (whatever that is ).

    _And then, at last, he had reached the real world – the world he had created, where he was God and could create or destroy whatever he wished.
    _He was supremely powerful. He told planets to destroy themselves, and they did. He created suns. Beautiful women flocked to be his. Of all men, he was the mightiest. Of all gods, he was the greatest."

    Appeal to it's vanity and arrogance, use the "genie back into the bottle strategum"

      I asked someone at work this morning and they showed me the 'Log Out' option from one of the drop-down menus that I swear wasn't there before.

          If all else fails, you can issue the command "shutdown -h now" or simply "halt" as the root user from any command prompt. This works with almost any unix variant, and does not require any graphical widgets. For more information, try "man shutdown".
