Ubuntu :: Reboot From Command Line To A Different OS?

May 20, 2010

I would like to know if I can reboot my headless ubuntu machine from command line to a different OS on the same disk. To clarify, I want to do this without having to manually choose in GRUB.

OS1: Ubuntu on sda1- it is the default OS in an always on server.

OS2: Fedora on sda2 - have to login into this once in a while.

There are no monitors attached with the machine. So I cannot manually scroll through grub and choose Fedora. I want to know if there is a command I can issue remotely to the Ubuntu server to reboot to Fedora.

Debian :: Reboot/shutdown Command Without Sudo?

Mar 11, 2011

I've added entries to my Openbox menu labeled Reboot and Shutdown. Problem is, reboot and shutdown h only work as root, and I never login as root. I've tried su-to-root -c reboot, but the menu entries remain unresponsive. I do not have sudo installed because I feel it is a security issue. However, I found that sudo reboot works with the menu entry, but only if my account is set to use sudo without a password in /etc/sudoers. I use tint2 as my panel, but have had no luck with finding a shutdown/reboot button.

Debian :: Run Script / Command Before Shutdown / Reboot In Jessie

Feb 20, 2016

How to run a script/command before shutdown/reboot in Debian Jessie.

I created a script myshutdown.sh in /etc/init.d/ to shutdown rTorrent if the reboot or shutdown now -h command was executed.

#rTorrent Shutdown Script
echo "Shutting down rTorrent!"
kill -2 `pidof rtorrent`

I set the file as executable.
sudo chmod +x /etc/init.d/myshutdown.sh

I inserted a symlink in the rc0.d directory with the process order K04.
sudo ln -s /etc/init.d/myshutdown.sh /etc/rc0.d/K04myshutdown.sh

I also inserted a symlink in the rc6.d directory with the process order K04.
sudo ln -s /etc/init.d/myshutdown.sh /etc/rc6.d/K04myshutdown.sh

Apparently rc0.d is for shutdown and rc6.d if for reboot

After reboot it appears that rtorrent does not run (I cannot connect to rtorrent via rutorrent) but really what is going on. I am trying to do this because rtorrent does a hash check on all files if it is not shutdown properly. I just want it to shutdown automatically and safely, before the system shuts down.

Slackware :: Turn Off Or Reboot Machine By Command Failed

Nov 4, 2010

I am using Slackware 13.1 on my Asus K40IN, I also use dual boot by LILO with Windows XP. In Windows XP I can reboot or shutdown by select Start -> Turn off Computer, or just physically push the power button, then the machine will shutdown. In my Slackware 13.1, I can physically push the power button, the machine show that it is switching to run level 0, and then it will power off. However, I can not turn it off or restart my machine by the command (run "halt" or "reboot" as root), it show identical things like when I physically push button, but when it turn to status "Restarting machine" or "Turning off machine", my computer hang there, it does not power off machine or restart it. Is there any one experienced this situation? What should I do to fix it?

Debian Configuration :: Jessie Upgrade Ssh Command Line Reboot

Nov 13, 2015

I've upgraded a server on our LAN from fully functioning Wheezy to Jessie. All seems fine except remote administering using Putty from my windows workstation when issuing reboot from command line, it goes down and reboots but stops at login prompt asking for username and password and does not come back on the LAN network. This server does not normally have a monitor or keyboard so my ability to remote admin this server in effect is disabled.

If I log on, it will come back on the LAN network. I've checked the logs but can't see any errors. Is it in the configuration of Jessie somewhere or perhaps a Grub issue. I have 5 other production Wheezy servers that I intend to update to Jessie once I understand how to deal with this problem.

Ubuntu :: Schedule A GUI App With At Or Crontab?

Mar 2, 2010

I want to schedule a Java program to run at a certain time, which will open a GUI progress monitor while it runs, and then terminate when it's done. I can execute it fine from the command line, but I it doesn't seem to work when I schedule it with crontab. In fact, I can't make any gui by scheduling it, not even something like gedit or firefox.

I know it's pretty rare that someone would want to do this, but is there any way to schedule a GUI app?

Ubuntu :: Strategy To Schedule Rsnapshot If Pc Is Not Always On?

Jun 20, 2010

I just did my first rsnapshot backup of my /home/ to an external harddisk. When I am not at my computer for a couple of hours, I always shut it down. Therefore, there are no predictable hours of the day where I know that my computer is running. So, how should I schedule/crontab my rotating rsnapshot backups?

Is anyone using rsnapshot in combination with a schedule which is not based on exact times but rather on the time the computer is running?

How would I go about creating a shell script with that command and then scheduling it to run once a day?

I was wondering if there was some calendar/planner/schedule program for Ubuntu so that I could input all my class HW/lecture/exam schedules for the semester and be able to keep track of whats due and whats going on? I know I could use Gmail's calendar, but I don't know if I will always have internet and I feel like a stand-alone program would be better.

Ubuntu :: Looking For Personal Schedule Software Package?

Mar 1, 2011

I'm not looking for software that has any relation to CPU scheduling, but something more for personal use. I don't want to use Evolution, because I'm not looking to keep track of weekly repeating tasks on an annual calendar. It's not for business use, but something more applied to home chores or weekly maintenance of my car. Has anyone come across anything close to this? I'm out of ideas on where to search.

Ubuntu :: Root Cronjob Not Working On Schedule

Jun 27, 2011

I have added "@daily shutdown -r now" to my root crontab (sudo crontab -e) but it does not seem to ever run. When I look at the chron log using webmin I can see that it tried to run and there was no error. Also when I run it manually using webmin the system reboots fine. I also tried using reboot -f in the crontab instead and that also worked when manually run but not on schedule. The reason I know it didn't run is on webmin it shows the system uptime. This is the output of the chron log:

Jun 26 21:17:02 GrantLaptop CRON[3467]: (root) CMD (cd / && run-parts --report /etc/cron.hourly)
