kfoss Posted October 22, 2010 Report Share Posted October 22, 2010 Hi, I've been running Mandriva for years and up until recently I've been avoiding doing updates to the currently install OS. Normally I wait until a new version comes out, wait a few more months and then do a complete upgrade. However, since installing 2010.1 I've been listening to the "alerter" and installing the updates. Why...mainly because it's annoying to keep getting messages that I have updates available. Now I've been noticing that when updates occur, that sometimes there are unforeseen complications. In early September after an update that affected KMail, I have no longer been able to send messages. This is a known problem within Kmail, but has yet to be fixed through another update. Similarly last night I let the system update the glibc packages. After reboot, I had to restart the system four (4) times and finally let it sit for 30 minutes before I could get to a login. Are the updates really worth it? It's not like I can look through a list of updates to see if they fix problems I'm experiencing. Comments...discussion?
