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.
