Turning off Auto Updates


After using Suse for awhile, I learned my leason... Dont update the system unless you absolutely need to. One of the issues with SuSe was the complete lack to go backwords if an update caused a system crash.

Now that I am running (and am happy) with Fedora 7, I want to take this new knowledge to heart. I either want to insure a way to return the system back to a normal state (without backing up) or I want to simply disable the auto updates.

Thanks
GJ

If you do disable auto updates, watch the changelog for updates that you REALLY need, IE security related ones

You can disable auto updates by disabling or uninstalling yum-updatesd.
