Re: notification of updates


I dont like anyone just tell me anything in any moment, I like search by my 
self; but if you like that hmmm!

In Debian (the better for me ;))

To update information about new packages:
*  apt-get update
Then to know which packages installed have new updates:
*  apt-show-versions -u | sort | less

I hope it can help you
