NAME

rebootin - Reboots the machine using a particular Boot Loader entry  

SYNOPSIS

rebootin [OPTIONS] <label>  

DESCRIPTION

rebootin reboots the machine it is launched on. While with a simple reboot you need to manually select the boot entry to use at startup, rebootin allows to specify the boot entry on the command line.

<label> is the name of the entry as named in the boot loader configuration file.

rebootin currently works with LILO and Grub.

Running rebootin without any argument displays the list of available boot entries as supported by the current boot loader.  

OPTIONS

-f
Create a /fastboot file to reboot in fastboot mode (eg: no fsck(8)).
-n
Don't reboot immediately just set the flags for next reboot.
 

FILES

/etc/lilo.conf /boot/grub/menu.lst
The rebootin executable (perl script)
