PC hangs from CLI reboot on remote connection.


Good Afternoon,

I am running Ubuntu 10.4 LTS, and when I do a restart from the GUI when at home , it will reboot no problem

I remote into my CLI from a remote location to work on it , and a couple times have had some issues with running applications, and figure a reboot is the natural response.

I have tried to do it 2 different ways,

one was:
sudo /sbin/reboot

the other was :
reboot -r (I think, it has been a couple weeks)

Any idea why this is happening through my CLI only? When I get home I have a black screen with some text on it, but I just hard reset it to restore it.

I have never tried a CLI reboot from the actual PC its self. I would just use the GUI.

This isn't MSWin, a system reboot is rarely necessary if an app is having an issue.
Why don't you show us that instead.

Secondly, why don't you try the CLI approach when you are sitting in front of it, you'll be able to see any msgs then...
Also, check the various logs under /var/log.

I think the 'other' reboot cmd you wanted was
Code:
shutdown -r now
http://linux.die.net/man/8/shutdown
