Updating software on: CORE
« on: October 11, 2009, 10:53:39 pm »
I installed a new MD- nothing special- no usbuirts, no MAME plugins, nothing, just a simple MD and as usual the reloads and regens had to take place and the software on the core had to be updated.  I think all of that got completed and I was prompted at some point shortly thereafter to reload the router which I clicked the "Yes, do it now" button and I was prompted with the- router is busy- see pending tasks, General Plugin Download Software on: 1.

I didn't think much of it, but now it's been close to 18 hours and it's still updating software on: CORE.  I hosed my last system by clicking the force reload now.  I am plagued with the orbiter already started error on my Core, so trying to use that is close to worthless as far as getting to KDE or even just the options in LMCE.  So, is there any way to see what's currently trying to be downloaded either from another orbiter, from the web admin or from a ssh/chroot into the core?

currently, no. but you can look for apt processes in the process list.
