what the bloody hell! 639 updates!
As I take another break from the Sunday series, I’ve got an urge to complain, bitch and moan as well as laugh — all at the same time. CentOS 6 (based on RHEL) usually takes a few minutes to run system and/or application updates. Last night, it took about a quarter of an hour as it had to run 639 updates excluding other secondary libraries. This wasn’t a full OS update, in which case I’d have done a clean installation. Why were there so many updates from one day to the next? Maybe it was a gremlin — such a Twilight Zone flashback. All the while, my son was getting impatient ’cause he wanted to play. In any case, now I’ve got the new versions of Firefox (ERS 17.0.5), Chrome (26.0.1410.43) and even wget (1.12).
