General Discussion / 2 boot work-around
« on: December 29, 2019, 02:21:25 pm »
I have a minimal Debian install that I use for kernel building. It does not have X.
After tinkering around for a bit I noticed I had warm rebooted more than 3 times. So just for grins I did four more warm reboots. No problems.

I then started Debian 10.2 (with X) and killed the display manager and was able to warm reboot that 4 times, that is all I tried. The same for Ubuntu 18.04

While in X open a terminal, log in as root or use sudo,

root@deb /etc/init.d/lightdm stop ---or whatever display manager is on your system like xdm, gdm3, etc..

Then CTRL+ALT+F2, login as root(or sudo) and type reboot.

It seems to take a bit of time for X to shutdown in Ubuntu.

Please let us know if this works for you more than 3 reboots.
