Is it possible to do a reboot, without actually rebooting? I have Ksplice, haven't had the chance to use it yet, but need something different. My desktop only will boot into the HD if I enter the bios during boot and tell it to boot from USB then it will boot to the HD, very odd and I have checked my BIOS and set it to default settings in case I may have changed something, but that did not solve it. So basically I do not want to do an actual shutdown/reboot. I added my Brother MFC-295CN and changed the script needed to scan but now I need to reboot to make it work. This is non kernel related so Ksplice will not do. Is there any other way? Would restarting lighdm do the trick? Is it possible?
Thank you for your time and answers
