Question no noos = good noos?


Hi,

Is it my impression or aren't there any upgrades lately for F10?

If there are, is my system core-corrupt? How would I fix that?

Tnx!

Thor
(weekend - I need to reach out)

nothing much, of course I login as root, it gets all the packages and then says there's nothing to update. as "no packages marked for update"

All quiet on the front?

According to the Fedora project:

Quote:
Fedora Project maintains any particular release of Fedora for a month after final release of the second following release.
...so it should still receive updates for some time. I don't use Fedora so can't check it.

Eh, possibly my ???dows-paranoia playing up. I checked the connections with netstat, did'nt see anything weird, did a ping to google (sorry google...) and got accepable return times (below 50 mS - that's fair I guess) and

did'nt reveal anything extra, as did

- just the lack of updates in combo with an over active CPU (as if there's an "implant" @ work behind the scenes) got me spinning the paranoia yarn...

Perhaps nothing @ all.

I'm sure Fedora has some kind of web page where they list all the updates they release. Maybe compare the last few package versions on that page with the ones you actually have installed?

There's a hint...

Sorry, but I'm still learning - and I doubt strongly I'll ever get to 50% - so the question keep comming...

Let me see what I can learn.

What was the basis for their assurance?

Well, if i ONLY take software in from well-known (trusted) repo's, there's nothing wrong, and hey, it's Linux, after all, maybe a rootkit, a worm...but that's "iffy" at best.

Thing is, sticking to trusted repositories addresses a completely separate issue. Here your concern is whether or not you are getting the updates you are supposed to be getting, which is not related to the condition of the software which you are getting. You already took a step in the right direction by voicing your concerns here, and I really do hope you see this through and verify that you're okay instead of assuming. I did a quick Google and found this page. It seems to show what you're supposed to have been getting. Seems like several updates have been released so far this month, with the latest (at the time of this post) being one for Perl three days ago. With the information on this page, package version verification should be a walk in the park.

Thanks!

Ok, so, let me trace-back my steps. There was an "invitation" to pre-upgrade to F11, after I entered my root pass, I saw that it was the pre-upgrade as proposed on the site, so that seemed ok...

Let me check...

Again, thanks, big-big thanks!

There are quite some packages "pending" - so I assume that I"ll get these soon. It's been more than a week, so I got a bit worried that my updater was broken...

Let's wait-n-C

"Good news, everybody"
(quote from Futurama - the professor)

The system just got a whole slew of goodies to update, so that's good news, then. My "fear" was that an "intruder" could prevent updates to the system to prevent itself from being "flushed/updated" out...

No problems, then.

Tnx 4 the tips - again, I've learned something. U2, win32sux, the update page is set into my favzz to be consulted every so once in a while!

Thor
