Installing updates on Linix servers
Posted on 2014-10-20
I have two linix servers in our network. I believe the are Suse , but I don't know how to be sure?
What I like to do is to be able to update the OS. I tried running a the commend Yum on the terminal and got a good amount of lines back. I was not sure if they are the updates that have already been installed or they are the ones that are now available to be installed. I noticed that some of the results were bold. Also, how do I can I distinguish between updates for the OS vs updates for some of the software that we have installed. ? In general it would be good to know how to use the Yum command altogether.
I am more concerned about the shell lock bash, but being able to figure out the above should resolve that. Thank you
