To give you two examples


su -
rccups restart
rcsshd restart
# and so on

Nepomuk you can restart by deactivating it in the kde settings ->
desktop search and then enabling it again or simply logout from your kde
session an login again.

One by one, each is different, as Martin said. If you do not know, first
log out, check again, if some are pending, reboot. Often an init 1, init 5
is enough instead of reboot. A reboot always works, no thinking :slight_smile:

To be honest in most cases I do myself simply what you describe Carlos.
For a server it might be a different situation, for my desktop/laptop
simply rebooting without much thinking is the fastest solution :wink:

In my real life on a desktop, I do not even look, but run on until the system is shutdown at the end of the day. Though theoreticaly there might occur problems, I never noticed.

Thank you for all answers. :slight_smile: I know for general solution is reboot the system , but it’ s stupid it’s a microsoft solution. :frowning: I want to learn how can i do without reboot . What the intelligence method, if i use a desktop OK but for server NO :open_mouth:

I must add that I do reboot asap after a kernel update. :wink:

OK for kernel update i know that i have reboot but for patches its not normal :wink:

As as already been said, each process can have a different restart
mechanism. Many respond to rcwhatever restart but some don’t. Some will
be quite happy if you just kill them; they’ll restart automatically. The
only way to know for sure is to search for instructions for each process.

But if you have a server where you care about such issues, then you will
have a staging and/or test server where you can experiment a little more
to find satisfactory answers before updating the production server.

Running a 24x7 server is much harder than running a 23.5x7 server. In my
experience, the most sensible way to do 24x7 in most cases is to have a
hot standby server. So the answer reverts to the simple case; after
updating the online server, just reboot it. The standby will take over.

That is why I gave you some example commands, on a server I guess you
live with the easier situation not to have desktop related processes
which need a special treatment. Most things on a server are in the “rc*
restart” category except changes to glibc and kernel.

Thank you for very good answer :slight_smile:
I understand what’s the method for restart same process but any i don’t know how can i do it.
Where can i read instruction for processes, how can i restart it?

man pages; reference manuals; linux admin books; google; this forum;
more specialized technical mailing lists.

Just have patience. You will learn with experience.
There is no list or document saying what you ask.

For a glibc patch it is also normal.
