What it is: it's what lets you use Linux with a rodent and
windows and all that. To update it it needs to be closed.

As for the how:
That will commonly depend on your distro. In Slack I'd
suggest an "init 2" entered as root in a console.




Cheers,
Tink

And in addition to that:

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
