Title: Uptime
Post by: Zeep-Eeep on June 02, 2004, 03:19:13 am
So, here's a geeky question: What are your uptimes? Current? Best?

I usually turn my computer off when I'm not at home or asleep. However,
since I've been doing a lot of programming and serving UQM movies
this week, I've been leaving my machine on most of the time.
So, at the moment, my uptime is aprox. 3 days on an install
of Fedora 2. (Fedora 2 has only been out about a week, so I'm pretty
happy with the performance.)

I think my best uptime was about a week on a copy of RedHat 9. I finally
shut it off to stop the heat coming from the CPU :)

How about ya'll?

Without counting new kernel installations, my uptime would be 1year+.    Currently its 22 days though.  I wish there was a way to upgrade to a new kernel w/o rebooting.  :P

My ipaq says its uptime is 1 day; but that's just the amount of time that it hasn't been suspended since the last reboot, which was several months ago.

I suppose if we were crazy and running user space Linux, we
might be able to switch kernels without a reboot. Though I
wouldn't see the point. I'm running a desktop machine, so any
uptime over a week would be serious over-kill. I do love the
stability though.
One server I code on (running RedHat 7) has currently been up for
about 200 days. Not bad considering the loads we put on it.

Which distro are you running, '20?

Like yourself I've been rather redhattish, but even though we have purchased a service for regular updates of RH 7/8/9, I've recently fallen in love with F2.  F2's version of OpenOffice 1.1.1 is better than the binary that is available through :)

I tried gentoo for a while since I know at least of their devs, but they've still got some kinks to work out (and they have no way to automate installs yet like kickstart).

On my ipaq, it's Familiar (
