after core update 136, sshd stops listening 'til reboot !

Post by ITechPro » October 13th, 2019, 8:11 pm

after upgrading a remote machine to core 136 via ssh I couldn't open another ssh session ???
Therefore it IS important to reboot while still being connected after the upgrade, otherwise you might loose remote/ssh access until someone reboots locally !

The update itself try to restart sshd but sshd refuse to restart if a current connection is preset.
run screen before you run "pakfire upgrade" and exit it with CTRL+A D and close the ssh session for the update or use the WebIF to start the update.
