Need help using ksplice!
hello i recently found out about ksplice which lets you perform updates without a reboot
i tried to install it but i dont know how to use it
i am pretty sure i installed it correctly
i installed it through the terminal by typing sudo apt-get install ksplice and everything went well (it shows up in the synamptc package manager as installed)
the problem is i dont know how to update using ksplice
there isnt anything in the ubuntu menu about ksplice and it doesnt show up in the panel either
i checked on their website and it says you can insert a command to upgrade but this is what i get
sudo: uptrack-upgrade: command not found
bash: uptrack-upgrade: command not found
i know there are updates availabe for my system since i checked using the regular ubuntu update manager
i cannot reboot since i am using a live cd and i desperately need to upgrade to the latest kernel
can you guys help me use it i really need this
I've heard/read about it, but haven't tried it yet, though I am considering it. Supposedly it will update your system kernel and such without needing to reboot the system itself. In fact, in current Linux systems, the package managers such as yum or syaptics will update just about everything except the kernel without rebooting the system. Sorry, but that's all I know.
Looks interesting, but I don't mind rebooting so won't be using it :p. The instructions here don't mention apt-get :confused:
Synaptics, afaik, is a front end to apt-get.
