When I try to shut down my computer, it freezes and never shuts down. This is because of problems with modem-manager in Ubuntu 11.10. Even when I disable networking, I can't shut down.

What I have tried:

  1. Add rt2x** into black list
  2. Kill modem-manager
  3. Disable wifi

The problem is: modem-manager: Catch signal 15

So, when you disable network-manager you can shutdown properly? –  Achu Feb 12 '12 at 19:25
No, I can't shutdown even when I disable network manager. (I disable it by unticking check box "Enable networking", maybe it should be done differently?) –  Lesya Makhova Feb 13 '12 at 11:01
