Re: Security Update

what commands should i type from the console to update the security fixes for a/any package(s)? Could i use apt-get?

You didn't say what version of Debian you were using. I'll assume you're running
the "potato" release.

First, make sure you have the security updates site listed in your "/etc/apt/sources.list" file. If it's not in there, just add this line at the bottom
of that file:

deb http://security.debian.org potato/updates main contrib non-free

Then just run apt-get (e.g. "apt-get update ; apt-get upgrade") or use dselect or
your package favorite tool and you'll have all of the security updates.
