Share what you know. Learn what you don't.
If you already had some/most of the 4.2.1.X PTFs then a reboot
would not be needed. If you were at an old level (220.127.116.11) then
a reboot would be needed. If you were somewhere in between
(18.104.22.168) then looking at the installp output for the messages
I mentioned above would tell you.
I think you probably only need to reboot if the install kicked off a
bosboot process to update the boot logical volume.
Just a suspicion.
If in doubt, boot it.

If you update some daemons and don't restart them, then you'll continueQuote:

Hi, I've send the following Email to tyan tech support :
"we have a computer with a S1830S mainboard.
It ran without problems with BIOS v1.16 and RedHat Linux 5.3 for over a
Since Y2K we got daily reboots, one or two per night. It did never reboot
during operation times.
We updated the BIOS to the latest v2.00.00 and installed SuSE Linux 6.2
with a 2.2.10 kernel but the reboots still remain.
So we booted with just a Win98 boot disk. It still rebooted at night.
The computer is equipped with a PII 450 Intel, a ATI 3D Charger PCI
grafic board, a 3 COM Etherlink 3C905 TX, a Matrox Meteor PCI Frame
Grabber and a Adaptec AVA-1505 SCSI Host Adapter.
Can you help us ?"
Is this problem known in this group ? Is there a software to put
a linux box under constant load to test the hardware ?
