    Linux on iMac reboots instead of shutdown

    Using shutdown -h or -H does not make any difference, I'm affraid... :-( I never tried de Magic SysRq REISUB, I just use the power button if Debian hangs itself ;-) Cheers, Eddy

    Linux on iMac reboots instead of shutdown

    I seem to have the year of manufacturing wrong, sorry, it is an iMac (Retina 4K, 21.5-inch, Late 2015). Amazing how fast the years are passing, doesn't it ? Cheers, Eddy

    Linux on iMac reboots instead of shutdown

    Sorry for the late reply, but yes, it IS a typical problem with Intel based iMac computers. Mine is a late 2016 machine and yes, I too have to push the power button for 5 seconds to be able to power down. I first give the shutdown -h now command in linux, wait until all shutdown text stops...

    Someone can tell me, WHY I NEED TO DOWNLOAD SO MANY RUNTIMES?!

    Someone can tell me, WHY I NEED TO DOWNLOAD SO MANY RUNTIMES?!

    Installing Ubuntu instead of Debian, won't change anything (as Ubuntu is Debian-based). With what exactly did you manage to fill 50+ GB worth with pure Debian OS ? Did you install any games or downloaded a lot of ISO files, filling up your downloads folder in /home ? In that case, I would attach...

    Someone can tell me, WHY I NEED TO DOWNLOAD SO MANY RUNTIMES?!

    Did you install build-essential in your Debian ? That will give you all neccerary basic stuff to compile. Of course, every source code program WILL ask for it's own -dev dependenties as well...

    Someone can tell me, WHY I NEED TO DOWNLOAD SO MANY RUNTIMES?!

    46 GB is plenty of space to compile ANY program.

    [Solved] HALP. constant errors when installing vpn via terminal on ubuntu

    What is the exact location of the zip file in question ? Are you sure it is located in the /etc/openvpn/ directory ? If yes, try to add "./" before the zipfile name, e.g. sudo unzip -j ./linux_op24_udp_v4_AES256GCM_AU_in_ci.zip Good luck !
