Default Fallacy of rebooting after updates (was FAT: Filesystem panic)

Hm, up to date Lenny with 5374942 seconds uptime?

Maybe you should reboot after you do an update? Not sure how update
works but if it only changes the files, and not the images of running
kernel or processes... And if you do several updates over 2 months
period with no reboot... ??

The checkinstall (in the debian-goodies package) script will show you
all the processes holding obsolete images, and will usually tell you the
script to run in order to restart them.

Only kernel upgrades require a reboot (but there are some clever people
who have gotten around that).
