Thread: Installed SLED 11 SP3 but no updates

  1. Installed SLED 11 SP3 but no updates

    I just installed SLED 11 SP3 and the "Update System" utility reports that there are "no updates". Is that right? Is OpenSSL fixed in SP3? The SP3 ISO is 100% up to date?

    Also I have yet to be asked for the code for the 60 day trial. Where do you enter that?

    Thanks

    Hi
    You need to use YaST -> Othher -> Customer Center then enter your
    activation code and email, then it will add the online repositories so
    you can update the system either via YaST online updates or from the
    command line using the zypper command.

    Great. Thanks again. Registration completed successfully. Now proceeding to "Online Update" in the "Software" category of YaST. That's the correct place to do updates from? It found many updates and I guess I'll install all of them.

    Cheers

    Just one thing tho: I can't find a way to check ALL of the checkboxes next to the update items. Do the items need to be checked to get installed?

    Cheers

    Hi
    You should be able to select the first one, then scroll to the end,
    hold the shift key and select the last one, it should in theory select
    them all. If you use the command line zypper (as root user)
    Code:
    zypper ref
    zypper lu
    zypper up

  6. Re: Installed SLED 11 SP3 but no updates

    Ok I found how to select all updates. The wording of the right-click pop-up menu was slightly misleading.

    There was over a 100 updates. I don't know how much out of date the SP3 ISO is, but I did do a little internet browsing with firefox before starting updates. I only visited trusted sites like google, cnn, yahoo and suse. The only site that I logged into was this suse website. If there were no really severe security bugs prior to first update then I guess there is no need to do reinstall of suse? I only visited those well known trusted sites and it was behind the NAT of the broadband router the whole time.

    Thanks for your assistance.

    Thanks, I managed to select-all with right-click (see "lowest" reply in this tree which I wrote a little earlier). So I guess there were no security updates that were so serious that a some brief browsing of trusted sites like this one prior to update was ok to do from behind NAT?

    Cheers, thanks for assistance, updates going smoothly.

    Assuming you're referring to Heartbleed, the version of OpenSSL included in SLED was not vulnerable.
