    tired of manual updates ?

    we all know it is a pain in the ass to have to upgrade our linux systems. I am sure there are other automated patching programs for some distro's out there, but I like this one.

    http://www.ximian.com/products/ximia.../download.html

    as you can no doubt tell, its called red-carpet. I have found it very easy to use, and it makes life simpler if you have multiple machines to patch.

    currently it is available for : Debian, SuSe, Yellow dog, Red Hat, and Mandrake.

    check out the link and enjoy. PS...it is not limited to the gnome environment...it works just as well in KDE.

    I still like to manualy update the systems I work on. Windows, Linux, and Unix. That way I have the patch files and/or updates at hand at all times. As well, that way I maintain complete contol over what is installed and whats not. It makes it easier to isolate bugs or conflicts when patches, fixes, or workarounds are needed or have been applied. For the home auto update programs are fine. It's just a matter of personal choice. If you like it use it.
