Re: [opensuse-support] pam.so listed by `zypper ps` ???

Inspired by a post here (somewhere), out of curiosity I ran
`sudo zypper ps` and was surprised to find that it had *any* output,
but even more surprised to see an awful lot of important-looking
libraries listed.

How the heck could this state have been acheived, and how scared should
I be to reboot, etc.?

After updating packages using rpm, zypper, or yast, files that were in
use can't be actually deleted and remain in use. Thus you have to
restart the affected applications or services - but some of them can not
be easily restarted, so instead it is easier to reboot.

If you don't, well, the security update that you did is not in fact
applied and you are still running the vulnerable versions.

On some cases, you may have in memory inconsistent libraries (one
updated, one old),


I list below the actions you can do instead of rebooting.

The following running processes use deleted files:

PID | PPID | UID | User | Command | Service | Files

------+-------+------+---------+-----------------+-----------------+--------------------------------------
1 | 0 | 0 | root | systemd | |
/lib64/libpam.so.0.84.2

reboot.

Ignore. Maybe restart network manager would do the trick.

Dunno.

Only that tiny list? :-p

Just reboot when feasible.
