Reboot hangs on Dell E6220

It’s a common linux problem and I only post about it for my own reference, but reboot hangs with Fedora 16/17 and my Dell Latitude E6220.

To fix add the grub option:

"reboot=pci"

The correct way to do this is to edit /etc/default/grub and then issue:

grub2-mkconfig > /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

  1. I’m not sure I fully understood.

    You mean add that line to ‘GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX’ at /etc/default/grub, and then as “su” run grub2-mkconfig to the grub2 folder?
