Ksplice Uptrack: Kernel updates without restart

Me being a sysadmin should give you quite much an idea of how much do i hate to restart serves (and sometimes even my lappi) just to make some updates in effect and majority of the time its about kernel patches and updates.

I was using intrepid when i first found out about ksplice, it didn’t work well because it need a kernel form jaunty repository and i was pretty comfortable with intrepid at the time being, later when i upgraded to jaunty and then karmic i thought about giving this a shot. I followed this guide to install it on my lappi and its works great. I have even installed it on one of my VPS machines and i am starting to love the concept behind this great piece of software.
