View Full Version : [SOLVED] System start not happening

May 5th, 2010, 08:15 PM
I have just done an update. It included an new linux image. It requires a system restart. When I try to restart or close down the machine nothing happens. It is as if I had not clicked the options to close down.

I suspect I will need to do the restart from the terminal.

What are the commands?

If that does not work how can I ensure that everything has been written to disk? I can then turn the power off and on.

I found this command and it worked

The command is 'shutdown -h now'. It must be run as a superuser.
