After installed the SLED 11 R2, went to YaST2 --> Support --> two choices relevant:

1) Novell Customer Center Configuration and

2) Support (floating ring icon)


If I select the Novell Customer Center Configuration--> fill in my registered email --> Browser starts checking the available packages. It then returns message: Software repositories did not to be changed.

But if I select the Support icon --> Open Novell Support Center --> Novell Patch Finder --> SLED 11 R2 --> It returns a long list of the current patches (Some are mandatory, others recommended).

It looks like there is no package to update, but there are patches available for updates. For such a long list of patches, is there a better and more efficient way for me to update them? (rather than download and update one by one)
