View Full Version : [ubuntu] power failure during updates

July 30th, 2009, 02:58 PM
I occasionally experience abrupt restarts during normal use of Jaunty.

I'm not sure what causes it but think it may have to do with power failure during updates. I installed Jaunty on this comp not too long ago and the first big update after installation was cut-off halfway through. I restarted the comp and the installation continued.

That is one possibility and then there is the combination of using SATA and IDE HDD in the mix. I'm still working on the booting issues here but for the moment- I'd like to find out whether or not my "abrupt restarts" requires an reinstallation of Jaunty or is there a way to fix the updates packages (broken if there are any).

TIA :)
