1 Hi there,
2
3 I'm planning to set my mother up with a very simple gentoo box, with
4 only what she needs etc.
5
6 Ideally it should require almost no interaction from me, and just
7 keep itself working and secure.
8
9 So, I'm planning to run "sudo emerge --sync" and "sudo glsa-check -f
10 new" from a cron job, perhaps once a week.
11
12 I can set up the sudoers part all fine, but is there anything I
13 should watch out for / consider when running these maintenance tools
14 from a cron job?
15
16 Thanks,
17
18 -Nick
