Description sean.lanham 1999-11-03 13:13:36 UTC
When using the update agent I noticed it didn't select the
package netscape-navigator, even though it is list under
the Security advisories section on the website. It did
download and install netscape-common and netscape-

Comment 1 Preston Brown 1999-11-03 14:38:59 UTC
The update agent is smart and only retrieves those packages you
already have installed.  If you have -common and -communicator
installed, but not -navigator, then it won't upgrade that for you.

If you DO want to be presented with ALL packages that are available,
even ones you didn't previously have installed, please select the
"Display all available packages" option.
