Thumbs up Install security updates?


Im on a fresh install of slackware, I installed all packages and upgraded to kernel 2.6.5.

I have in the past always upgraded via swaret to current. I do not want to do that this time.. All I want to update is just security fixes.

My question is what can I use to do this or should it be done manually??

btw... This system runs smoothly without having dropline installed.... its usually the first thing I install after upgrading. I think I skip out on that in the future now!

thanks
trey

This will list just the changes to 9.1. You can do it manually. Since you are not chasing the packages in current it will not be as big a deal. Any of the mirrors will have the changes in the 9.1 folders.
