My ongoing experiences with Ubuntu, and later Mythbuntu, as a media center with MythTV. I'm also using the system for a virtual machine server, a mediawiki server and a general all around home infrastructure base.

Ubuntu automatic update

I wanted to set up automatic updating of all of packages, based on the directions at AutoWeeklyUpdateHowTo I did the following:
# apt-get install cron-apt
# vi /etc/cron.daily/auto-update
# cat /etc/cron.daily/auto-update
#!/bin/bash
/usr/sbin/cron-apt
/usr/bin/apt-get dist-upgrade
# chmod 755 /etc/cron.daily/auto-update
