How Do I Check for Patches


I need to find out what patches are/are not installed on my SuSE 7.0 mail server. Does anybody know how to go about doing this?

"I need to find out what patches are/are not installed on my SuSE 7.0 mail server."

Red Hat patches are installed as rpm updates. You can use:

rpm -qa | sort | less

to find out what rpm packages are currently installed. rpm does not have a log function so you cannot find a list of what rpms were updated and when. To do this you would have to compare your rpm list to a list of recommended rpm updates.

I keep track up updates with my own personal system maintenance log. I suggest that you start keeping a system maintenance log.
