Why won't lightdm die any more during shutdown? If I try to stop xdm using /etc/init.d/xdm stop I get:
Code:
 recluce ~ # /etc/init.d/xdm stop
 * Stopping lightdm ...
 * start-stop-daemon: 1 process refused to stop
 * Error stopping lightdm
 * ERROR: xdm failed to stop
recluce ~ #


I know this used to work, but I'm not sure when it stopped working, since I usually don't pay much attention during shutdown.

Might be stupid question to some but asking anyway.

Have you checked if lightdm is supported by the installed 'xdm' init script? It was added only recently to later xorg-server ebuilds which the xdm file is part of.

See,

Code:

$ grep lightdm /etc/init.d/xdm
   lightdm)
   EXE=/usr/sbin/lightdm
   PIDFILE=/var/run/lightdm.pid

Yes, it's supported. I'm running ~amd64 and up to date. I've been using lightdm for quite a while, and this problem only started recently.

Yes, it's supported. I remember this happened when lightdm is recently updated few days ago.

I noticed last night that lightDM is now stopping without a problem. Not sure what update fixed it, but it's all better.

My lightdm hangs on shutdown too.

Has this been fixed for everybody else now?

If so can anybody identify what the problem was? It seems I am missing something.

I tried lightdm (with lightdm-kde) out yesterday. It won't shut down for me either. Only kill -9 kills it.

I was also unhappy with that it didn't understand reboots and thus respawned when I wanted to reboot.

I switched back to kdm. It works.

Switching from glib-2.30.3 to the unstable glib-2.32.4 fixed it for me.
