View Full Version : How to handle Ubuntu security updates with slimserver headless server?

2008-01-13, 08:13
Hi everyone, I have a ubuntu mini itx server just to serve my music which runs headless. I always turn my server off remotely when not using my SB. A few times after powering it up and playing my first track the slimserver has lost connection during the first song and the music stops. I have noticed there is a lot of disk activity on the remote server when this happens, so I think it has done a security update and automatically rebooted itself. After this the SB comes back to life again and there are no more problems that day. I would like to know how to prevent this from happening if possible, is there anyway of preventing an automatic reboot of the computer?

For information I use ubuntu gutsy, I have all software update sources enabled and get my server to check for updates once a week and to only prompt about updates.

Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance, Mark.
