Quick question - which updates to install? (MDK 10.1)


Hi!

Just a quick noob question. I've recently installed Mandrake 10.1 and after a few initial problems, everything seems to be running well now. However, as I didn't install any updates when I installed MDK, I'm thinking it would be wise to do so now (having configured my internet conection). Which ones do I download and install from RPMdrake? All of them? Security, bug fixes and normal updates? I have an ADSL connection but even so, as they amount to 398MB, I was wondering if they're all necessary? If so then I'll install the lot; your advice is much appreciated though.

many thanks,

David

May as well get the lot, it'll just update packages already on your box.

Check out easy urpmi too to make best use of mandrake rpm repositories
