it's wicd set to autoconnect. Manual disconnect before reboot would resolve the issue.

Now I need to come up with perfect shutdown without manual wicd disconnection.


Now that's interesting. Are you in it using any kind of network shares?

I am not.
I just get connected to my wifi router and that's it.

I just don't like its command-line interface. I'm ok with it. But other desktop with same wifi dongle should be easy to turn off/on connection in case. So I need to 'tweak' wicd I guess.

Spent hours in searching for such case workaround (or anything) and found nothing useful :undecided:
some say of "change shutdown sequence" https://asyoulook.com/computers%20&%20i ... re/1299326 but no positive result.

So I ended up with adding disconnect command to function that stops wicd in /etc/init.d/wicd

Code: Select all

# Function that stops the daemon/service
#
do_stop()
{
   # Return
   #   0 if daemon has been stopped
   #   1 if daemon was already stopped
   #   2 if daemon could not be stopped
   #   other if a failure occurred
   wicd-cli -x --wireless
   start-stop-daemon --stop --quiet --retry=TERM/30/KILL/5 --pidfile $PIDFILE --name $NAME

I don't think it's good enough but better than nothing.
Anyone's help is still welcomed. Thank you...
