I was deafened by the fireworks.
Actually I do not follow “futbol”, which is strange in this country, I just
could not remember the fourth repo O:-)
Yes, packman would be the fourth, but you have to set it up manually.

i absolutely agree with you on that!!
but, the good thing about opinions is everyone is allowed to have their
own…there is no right or wrong…that is, i think football is a
waste of time, and if 5 billion think it is not, then that makes no
difference, to me and my opinion…
see, there might even be 5 billion that think it is a waste of time, and
still you are entitled to be the worlds biggest fan, and i should never
say you are wrong for wasting your time.

well, i thought you were running 12.2 and expecting updates…sorry…
but, 12.1 has had at least two kernel updates in the last seven or eight
days…did you get those??
hmmmm…maybe you don’t understand the difference between the security
patches and major bug fixes which flow through the update repo versus
application upgrades (to higher numbered/newer versions)…
upgrades do not, and never have flowed though the update
repo…(granted, sometimes instead of a number of small patches/bug
fixes they will push a new version into the update repo…for example
they have been doing that with the monthly Firefox and Thunderbird
releases…but the prime reason for that is when Mozilla released (for
example) FF 13 they stopped supporting FF12, which means it will never
receive any security patches…so, 13 is pushed through update)
and not seeing a lot flowing through the update repo is in reality a
good thing–because it means that the software you have has not been
determined to need to be patched because of security flaws.

you won’t have to remember, it will be added automatically.

i don’t know what you base that on…if a security flaw is discovered,
it will be patched and it will flow though the non-oss update repo…
