    29 How do you do a soft reboot?

    I've looked thru the forums for a couple of days, but I can't seem to find the answear to that question.

    I've tried the standard linux 'shutdown -r now' - no go. I pulled that from memory. I know that in normal linux you can also set init to something diff & it will reboot, but don't remember what.

    Anyway, is there a way to make the unit do a soft reboot, or is the only way to unplug it?


    I recently hacked RCA DTivo HDR40 by dropping in a cheap 80Gb drive and using Sleeper. Worked great. Then I played with rc.init.author and lost all the hacks. No big deal, I probobaly forgot to set permissions, or maybe the editor I used in windows didn't save it right. Either way, I have a good copy sitting on the drive, just need to get to it.

    One last question, if anyone feels like answering: What's the fix for the Joe editor? I know it's in the forums, but I haven't run across it today.

    Thanks all!
