Which linux version are you using ?
Anyhow any linux distro has a update manager .
Start the update manager as root and see if there are updates for you're system.

vksm;

So far--after 5 posts--you:

1. Have not posted any follow-up or thanked people for their help.

2. Have never said "please"

This pattern will make it more difficult to get help here.

I wanted to get Linux updates as are available from magazine "Linux For U".

Is there any website which keeps track of what's going on in the Linux world.

By Linux I mean Linux not any kernel or a particular distribution !!

Thanks !

Thanks for bothering !

http://kernelnewbies.org/
I have seen this website before, but I have found its forums are not so active ! I have not tried its mailing list though !

http://lwn.net/Kernel/Index/
This site seemed to contain lots of info regarding the kernel...

EDIT:
Many thanks to u for pointing http://lxer.com/ news website ! I had not seen it before !
