    Default Updater does not look for updates

    Hi

    I am using Kupdater on Suse 11.1 (with the version of KDE that comes with 11.1 - 4.1.3?). The updater icon appears in the systray, but no auto checks are ever done (apart from at system startup) despite it being set to check every 6 hours. However if I right-click the icon and select "Check Now", it works fine and pulls down the correct updates. Any thoughts as to why this works but the scheduled checks don't?

    Thanks

    Fred

    OK, and thanks, but I'm not sure where I stand with my original question. From what I've learned here, it looks like the updater applet was only pulling a subset of updates - I did get a number of security and other updates when I prompted the updater to check. Perhaps this was because of the pending update to YAST? Is it likely after this download that the applet will work as it should, doing the scheduled checks correctly?

    I have disable the updater from starting. It's a PITA as far as I'm concerned. Post the result of this again :
