Smart and security?

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 71.243.60.161] on November 10, 2007 03:27 AM
How does Smart handle distro specific security patches? If the repositories you point to are the same as the distros I would think you'd be ok, However, if the patch is there you may need to know it's there since you may loose the auto update notification of the native package manager I would think. This may not be a problem for KDE users using ksmarttray In that they would be notified about available patches/updates. But what about GNOME users?
