Getting security updates

July 19, 2007

I found the provider’s local mirror directory for supported distributions empty (why?), and hence reverted /etc/apt/sources.list to the recommended original version.

deb sarge/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src sarge/updates main contrib non-free

This will place a little extra burden on my monthly bandwidth allowance: when I run apt-get update (then apt-get -s upgrade) and then apt-get upgrade the report indicates approx. 50 MB of cumulative downloads.

The following packages will be upgraded:
  apache2 apache2-common apache2-doc apache2-mpm-prefork apache2-utils
  bind9-host bsdutils cpio dhcp-client dnsutils file flex gnupg gzip info
  kernel-image-2.4.27-2-386 libapache2-mod-php4 libapr0 libc-client2002edebian
  libdns16 libfreetype6 libgcc1 libgd2-noxpm libgnutls11 libisc7 libkrb53
  liblwres1 libmagic1 libpcre3 libperl5.8 libsasl2 libssl0.9.7 libtasn1-2 login
  man-db mlock mount mutt openssl passwd perl perl-base perl-modules
  php4-common ppp python2.3 spamassassin spamc ssh tar texinfo util-linux
  uw-imapd zlib1g
