Kernel update…

Filed under: Computers

In additon to the other things I woke up to this morning, was a kernel update. Sigh. I hate kernel updates. They are the day of reckoning for linux users. The day when you find out if all the crazy crap you’ve done to your box since the last one has totally fubared it.

Will it boot when I restart?

Will my apps all keep working?

Am I going to spend the day troubleshooting?

That restart symbol is sitting in my panel, staring at me. It’s a contest I can’t win. Sooner or later, I have to reboot, and then…who knows.

Well, things like this are better done quickly. Here we go…

    Funny you should write this… I was thinking the same thing, only in my case I have a lot of work to get done this weekend so I need the computer running like a champ.

    I did update my laptop and it went off with out a hitch so there is that.

    Good luck my friend and god speed…
