Would this be useful for updating?
I don't like the concept of uploading my system information to mdkonline, so I've never done it. But I want to keep up-to-date on package bug fixes and security updates, so I have always just browsed to a mirror and visually checked for packages I recognize and downloaded and installed them.
But now I'm working on a shell script that queries both the package list from a mirror and my RPM database and then automatically downloads the RPMs that need to be updated. I still have to run URPMI manually to install them.
Please help me with two questions:
- Is there anything like this already?
- Would others find it helpful?
