to force a 'hard' reboot (if reboot is not working) - equivalent to pulling the power cable:
echo 1 > /proc/sys/kernel/sysrq; echo b > /proc/sysrq-trigger
come on dom, you know you want to try it.
what's this do? what's this do? what's it do???
you tell us
yeah, that's awesome
it just tells BIOS to reboot
(or something like that anyhow)
so, immediate reboot in other words?
system just goes *blip* and starts posting
So there you go. Want to reboot without waiting for all those nasty processes to finish or phyiscally pressing the power button? That's your way out.
Thanks, toddz :D
