Mintupdate: Limit download

Postby hoppel on Thu Dec 13, 2007 5:15 pm


I'd like to see the possibility to configure Mintupdate in a way, that it makes a difference between important and less important updates. I have a very unstable and slow network, which makes every big update very painful. It would be nice if Mintupdate would only update - for instance - critical security leaks and important bug fixes (for specifically chosen apps) immediatly and other stuff in bigger (best: variable) intervals. This would save time and nerves for me...

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

As a temporary work around you could set it to only use level 1 and 2
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
