Re: [suse-security] Auto-Updating-2



I do not get emails... I have forwarding setup right (I get emails to root all the time) so I know thats not just my prob.

What did you do to setup online update?

PS. I'm using SuSe 9

Hi Brock,

On my box, running Suse 8.2, I get e-mail (sent to
root) everytime online update runs, listing all of the
updates and which ones were installed.

Thanks and hope this helps,

Jonathan.

P.S. for some reason, suse-security wont except my
e-mail, so I couldn't post this to the list.

Every wednesday at 3am this cron runs, but it is not
in the crontab...

I had configured YaSt2 at one point, through the
"graphical" interface (gui through a terminal?), to auto-update, but I don't know if this is working or not... how can I make sure it is working, ie; get reports of success/failure/what it does? or how can i disable this yast2 completely so I can use the fou4s utility. I need a solution that will download and install updates on a regularly schedule, completely
hands off.

Thank You,
