Re: packages requiring me to reboot...

Maybe this is a feature that needs to be addressed in the rpm layer or something so that upgrades can have multiple effects with regards to needing a reboot. I'm not sure how PK gets the request to reboot from a package, but I'm wondering about it.

It doesn't get it from the pkg. It uses the updateinfo.xml metadata that is generated by our update processing system that is called 'bodhi'.

You can see this data using the yum-security plugin.

seems like a package basically has complex upgrade issues, so we reboot. Are there other tags packages can have other than reboot? Should there be? etc etc..


I am an advanced user, and manage a handful of servers and workstations, so yes I don't have to reboot. I'm just wondering about the reboot 'feature' usage patterns I'm seeing.

And again. PK is not designed for you. The 'reboot often' solution is not FOR you.

I said this earlier on another subject but you shouldn't be shocked that camels are slow swimmers.
