    Question Screen freeze when logging off or shutting down KALI (USB booted system)

    Hi there,
    My first post, but I will go straight to the point
    My setup:
    • Persistant USB booted Kali machine with LUKS encryption
    • BIOS set to legacy (UEFI not able to boot up)
    • graphic card: GTX 765M
    • CPU: 4th generation Intel® Core™ i7 Processor
    • USB: SanDisk Ultra CZ48 16GB USB 3.0


    The problem:
    When shutting down or logging of, the screen just freezes and nothing happens.
    Unfortunately I can't give more details then:
    • shutting down: USB drive LED not blinking
    • logging off: USB drive LED blinking occasionally


    Questions:
    1. Is it a videocard issue?
    2. How do I debug this? (booting with certain flags maybe?)
    3. Anyone having the same issue?


    All feedback is welcome!
    Thank you in advance!

    I can provide a video of the problem if needed

    Try pressing escape when it is frozen to see the shutdown commands behind the splash screen, or remove "quiet splash" from this line in etc/default/grub GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"

    You can do this by editing the etc/default/grub file

    gedit etc/default/grub - make the edit so it looks like this GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=""

    If you had other parameters between the "" you can leave them in the line then update grub with typing update-grub in Terminal

    Hi there,
    My first post too, but i will go straight to the point too

    i have the same problem.
    I did what stevo4 suggested.
    When i try to shutdown the computer (via gui or with shutdown, reboot) the gui freezes and i can't press anything. Only thing that helps is so press my powerbutton. But that corrupted my installation and i had to reinstall (tried several solutions by now and had to reinstall several times :'D )

    I'm running Kali 64bit on my old HP pavilion dv7 just for testing purpose. Kali runs fine until i try to reboot/shutdown the system.

    lsb_release -a
    Distributor ID: Kali
    Description: Kali GNU/Linux 2.0
    Release: 2.0
    Codename: sana
