Security Updates


Good day?
I am running Mandrake 9.1 as a web server and DNS. WHen you run MandrakeUpdate does it list only pathes and fixes for your machine (only applications currently installed on your machine) or does it list all patches and fixes regardless if you have it installed? I want to insure that I have all security updates installed but I don't want to install them if it isnt installed on the box. Thank you very much.

I would think updating wouldn't throw on SW you didn't already have.

true that. It only lists updates for things that are already installed. Thanks for the reply.
