View Full Version : [ubuntu] Upgrading kernel without reboot

December 16th, 2010, 08:05 PM
I have an Ubuntu 8.04 server running 2.6.24-23-server. I have a godaddy account and I am trying to upgrade my os version to 10.04, which requires a kernel upgrade. I have tried ksplice but kernel 2.6.24-23-server is not supported. I have heard about screen sessions but I have not found it possible to reboot one screen while having the other screen stay persistent if it is possible.

So the main question is how to update Ubunut 8.04 to Ubuntu 10.04 with out rebooting the entire server? Rebooting is completely not an option at the moment.

There is a retail version of Ksplice for servers, the price is only $3.95US per month.
