Full-time job updating CentOS
I am a Slackware user trying to get to know RedHat a little better by using CentOS. Besides the internal differences, there is one point that is puzzeling me.
I keep my Slackware up to date with the security updates. For Slackware 10.1 and 10.2, this amounts to a weekly check, a few upgrades every now and then, quick and fast.
I check for CentOS updates once a week as well, but I am overwhelmed by the large number of updates and the long download and update time. Mind you, my Slackware is a full install, whereas CentOS is not.
Why is it that CentOS has so many security upgrades? And if you have to manage a medium-sized server farm, isn't staying up to date becoming a full-time job?
