[suse-security] Command line version of You



Since upgrading to 10.1 I have found applying security updates has become 
an extremely hit-and-miss process which takes much longer than it did 
under SuSE 9.3. I would be very grateful if someone could answer two 
questions:

(1) What is the simplest way of applying security updates from the 
command-line? Something equivalent to 
 online_update security

(2) How do you configure it to use a local mirror instead of the far-off 
Austrian mirror that the Setup process likes to configure?

I have looked at the rug man page and frankly don't understand it (the 
only bit I do understand turns out to be a lie: it says the only command 
you need is 'rug update'). I'm not interested in catalogues and services 
etc, I just want to install security updates.
