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.

Auto-updates under mythbuntu

Seems like mythbuntu doesn't install any sort of auto-update process, so I did the following to set one up.

First, I installed cron-apt:

# apt-get install cron-apt

Then, I created the following cron job:
# crontab -e
# crontab -l | tail -1
0 1 * * * /usr/bin/cron-apt && /usr/bin/apt-get -y dist-upgrade
