updating via the command line

I swear I did search first (Mandrake website, Google, and Google groups) but did not find the answer.

I'm trying to use the command line (Konsole) to do everything that could also be done with wizards and such. I've figured out quite a lot but am still stumped and how to update (security, rpm's etc.) my system simply and without using the Mandrake Control Center and without manually downloading and installing everything from the website.

Thanks in advance.

Well most will use their favorite text editor ( vi is mine ) and edit the configuration files for any particular service, startup script, etc by editing the file manually.

urpmi probobly has that ability (at least APT does).

try "man urpmi" and see what the command is.

Im not on Mandrake, so I cant tell you exactly.
