Update Crunchbang?

How do I update the basic #! system?

I know that Ubuntu nags me with a pop up screen about some sort of security patches or updates. Does #! do the same?

How?

Thanks

Re: Update Crunchbang?

In a terminal use:

sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude upgrade

You could also use:

sudo aptitude dist-upgrade

I'm actually not at all sure what the difference between "upgrade" & "dist-upgrade" is, but I'm sure @Alad will be along in a minute to explain things far better than ignorant old me... smile

Re: Update Crunchbang?

I was looking for something that would only update the essential operating system files and security stuff that probably needs updating. I noticed that using "sudo aptitude dist-upgrade" wants to remove one of the programs (OpenCPN) that I need.

Which command should I use?

Re: Update Crunchbang?

There are some GUI options if you would prefer.  You can install "gnome-packagekit" from synaptic and run:

gpk-update-viewer

Or there is "update-notifier"

This will also install "update-manager-gnome" then whenever you login it will automatically check for updates and notify you to install when there are updates.
