Hello all. I am used to RedHats Up2date program which queries a database to see if any of my files need to be updated. I really like this because I can feel confident that my system has the latest patches and or versions.
I realize that SlackWare doesn't have this automatic feature which is ok. I want to learn how to find this information out and do the updates manually anyways.
My question is what is the best way to find out which files on my machine have updates.
I am running Slackware 9.1 and don't know where to begin looking to see if any of my files are outdated.
I went to the http://www.slackware.com/security/
and am not sure how far back in history I need to look.
Should I just find out the release date of 9.1 and only concentrate on updates after that.
