Chapter 12. Keeping Up to Date > SuSE's Online Update

SuSE's Online Update

SuSE follows a similar approach to Mandrake in that its package update tool is accessed through its all-in-one system administration interface, YaST2 (Yet Another Setup Tool 2). YaST2's program name is simply yast2. You can run it from a shell or by using your KDE quick launcher <Alt+F2>. Once again, the requirement for administrative privileges means you will be asked for root's password.

When the YaST Control Center appears, double-click on the Online Update icon. Another YaST2 screen will appear, this one offering you a choice of either an automatic or a manual update scheme. The manual update will show you all of the packages for which there is an update, allowing you to pick and choose between them. Unless you are completely confident with your system and what packages you want updated, it is probably best to choose the Automatic Update setting (do this by clicking the radio button).
