    Default Online updates don't work as expected :(

    Hi there. I noticed recently that despite having the online update option in yast enabled, I rarely see the notifier in the bottom taskbar reminding me of installing available updates. At first I thought that this version of suse is so great that it doesn't need much patches , however that was a false prediction. A few days ago firefox released a security update (version 3.5.8) check this page Firefox 3.5.8 Closes Security Holes, but unfortunately till now I didn't get any update notification for it, so I tried to launch "Online Update" manualy from yast, but sill no luck, while on my laptop running Ubuntu 9.10, I got the firefox update the very next day.I wonder why is this so, is there something wrong with suse repos, or am I missing something? Probably it is the last one, so please help me with this. My repos look like this:
    Code:
     zypper lr

    Please change the priority of Packman to 99 to match the rest.

    Then do this:

    Code:
    zypper dup -r packman
    post the result of
    Code:
    uname -a

    well I expected it to update to version 3.5.8, I don't think I expect to much or do I As I said on ubuntu 9.10 with no extra setting up, I already got the update, but not on suse. Do I need an extra repo for this? Thanks again.

    Currently it's v. 3.5.7

    You can add a repo to get v 3.6
    =====================================

    Code:
    zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/mozilla/openSUSE_11.2/ Mozilla
    Code:
    zypper dup -r Mozilla

    Ok, I got now the version 3.5.8 without adding FF repos
    Code:
    zypper dup -r packman
    this obviously did the trick, but needed a reboot. Ok so via zypper I can get the updates, but would prefer if the updates would get installed automatically via the "update notifier". Is there any special setup for this, except the "Automatic Online Update" tick in yast.
