Log out of other accounts before running system updates

just use su instead of ssh e.g.
su user_name

Log out of other accounts before running system updates
Authored by: myshkin5 on Jan 15, '04 12:56:53AM

I couldn't use su because all applications were closed when the installer was attempting to reboot. Terminal.app wouldn't start because it was attempting load graphics libraries that weren't fully installed yet. sshing from a remote machine was the only way in to kill the other user.

The real problem is that Apple is attempting replace critical pieces of the OS while the system is running. Other OSes will do this as the system is booting.
