📌 PSA 30/06/23

PSA: We have updated the Nitrux Update Tool System to include functionality to use kexecKexec is a mechanism in Linux that allows you to load and boot a new kernel without going through the entire reboot process.

  • ⚠️ Important: The kexec command boots directly into a new kernel without going through the standard system startup process. It replaces the currently running kernel with a new one and starts executing the new kernel immediately. As a result, all processes running in the current kernel, including the graphical session, will be abruptly terminated. This includes any applications, services, or processes that rely on the current kernel for execution, including the graphical user interface (GUI).

To update nuts, do the following.

  • If the user followed the instructions on the repository’s README or the tutorial on How to upgrade Nitrux to use the Nitrux Update Tool System on supported releases, simply run git pull within the directory where the Nitrux Update Tool System was downloaded to or clone it again if the user deleted the directory.
  • Do the following if using Nitrux 2.9.0, where the Nitrux Update Tool System is included by default.
    • Open the terminal and use overlayroot-chroot.
    • Then, proceed to follow the instructions in the README or the tutorial. Optionally, delete the directory used for cloning.
sudo overlayroot-chroot
