Hi all,

The title pretty much says it. After successfully running commands in a console, I type reboot and my puppy linux install to HD becomes totally unresponsive.

It gets worse though Smile After which, the computer doesn't recover, even after several minutes and if I do a hard reboot, the install won't load anymore and I have to reinstall.

I have even tried reboot --help and the get the same result.

Puppy has all the tools I need for my task, but I need to be able to reboot from a shell script.

Thanks,
WW

EDIT: I should add, it doesn't matter whether you are running from the CD or from the hard drive, typing reboot in a console window locks up the computer.

In Puppy, the command for a reboot in X with terminal console is "wmreboot". The "reboot" command is only good at the command prompt, out of X. It is the same for "poweroff" and "wmpoweroff".

On a hard restart, normally a command of "xwin" (no quotes, of course) gets you going again at the prompt.

Good Luck, Kal

I actually did that this last Sunday. I typed reboot from a secure terminal session which had X11vnc running in a session on top. The computer froze so I had to hard poweroff the machine and restart it it. It came back to a # prompt where I coudn't type anything in. The keyboard wasn't working. A USB keyboard but I wouldnt think that mattered.

I couldn't type in StartX or xwin. Why is that?
