Description From 2011-09-26 23:29:38

The following line in the output of "rebootin --help" makes no sense:

<filename> must specify seekable regular file or device.

It must have got there by mistake. It could be substituted by the following
line from "man rebootin":

       <label> is the name of the entry as named in the boot loader
configuration file.

Complete output:

# rebootin --help
rebootin - reboots the machine using a particular Boot Loader entry

usage: rebootin [options] <label>
<filename> must specify seekable regular file or device.

  -f, --fastboot                    reboot in fastboot mode.
  -n, --noreboot                    don't reboot immediately.
  -l, --list                        list available labels.
  -h, --help                        show this text and exit.

Rebootin currently works only with LILO.
