Abstract: We prove Sullivan's fixed-point conjecture for fixed-point-free actions of compact Lie groups which are extensions of a $ p$-group by a torus. Moreover, we show that for a finite $ p$-group $ G$ and a compact or finitely dimensional paracompact $ G$-space $ X$ the fixed point set $ {X^G}$ is nonempty iff the induced homomorphism of zero-dimensional stable cohomotopy groups $ {\pi ^0}\left( {BG} \right) \to {\pi ^0}\left( {EG{ \times _G}X} \right)$ is injective.
