Do you update your Point Linux regularly?

And if so, do you use the Point Linux Updater or do you use
sudo atp-get dist-upgrade?
Linux from 1997 (Slackware, Caldera, Red Hat, Mandrake, (Open)SuSE, Poppy, Ubuntu, CentOS, Mint 13 & LMDE, Crunchbang)

If at first you don't succeed . . . . . . . .

I must say I'm a bit addicted to updating. I'm using
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

or the same with aptitude. update manager is completely unneeded, because I'm to impatient to wait day or two for newer upgrade. if I want to compare what is upgraded (version numbers) I'm using synaptic (but for upgrading kernel or other crucial system applications I'm using apt-get/aptitude mainly in virtual console).

of course the number of upgrades is very limited for stable Debian - mainly from security repository. comparing to sid, just trace amount.

Yes, I update regularly, but now and then update manager beats me. I agree, once you get the hang of it, apt-get update and upgrade are the way to go.
