Thread: Default selection for updates?

  1. Default selection for updates?

    On my home machine I decided to totally wipe 7.04 and install 7.10 (I
    know I don't have to, but I'd not done much with that machine and wanted
    to run through my notes from a previous install). Once I got the
    wireless working I ran the update manager but it reported nothing needed
    updating which I found odd. After checking, it seems that none of the
    options within the updater were selected but I don't recall having to
    manually select what updates to look for in 7.04, not sure why this
    should be the case this time. Should any update options be set by
    default after install? If so, which are usually set as standard?

    I'm not 100% sure about this, but I seem to recall one of my previous
    installs deselecting the repositories as there was no working network
    interface detected. The only "source" left active was the installation
    media IIRC.

    Would this apply to your scenario, Ste?
