Is there a way I can circomvent the anoying auto update wizard, and use a bash script with apt-get update and apt-get upgrade that rubns monthly at 12:30 pm on the first and third tuesday of the month?
More curiosity: Which "anoying auto update wizard" are you running & how does it become a "pesky updater aplication bugging me constanly"? I've just done my 1st pure Debian installation in years, so I'm wondering what to expect. BTW, I'll be running KDE not GNOME.
I've been running MEPIS for years & have never found the update notifier annoying in any way other than the fact that it can't be configured to open KPackage instead of Synaptic.
Of course KPackage needs to be updated to use aptitude instead of apt-get -- aptitude has been the Debian standard for how long now?
Besides, once you have automated w/ cron job, why not run it every night & be safer?
Please forgive the disjointedness of these thoughts.
