    • Why no update notifications, and when reboot (notification pop-up)?

      Hi,

      as a novice I do have two questions.

      1. after activation the mail-notifications I thought, that when an update appears I will get a notification, that an update is available (with the last debian update, there has been no notification)??

      2. As I'm not an linux expert I don't really know, when I have to restart the OMV-System or not? Sometimes I actually need to make a restart after installing updates, sometimes not... A notification pop-up would be cool to know, that the changes only take effect when rebooting....
    • Generally speaking, only an update to the kernel would require a reboot.

      I don't know why you are not getting update notifications. Mine is also broken and I have not seen any update notifications in years.

      I never seen an update that requires a reboot. I 've heard that you have to do that on Windows :) but not on Linux.

      I must not fear.
      Fear is the mind-killer.
      Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
      I will face my fear.
      I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
      And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
      Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
      Only I will remain.

      The kernel :)

      The existence of /var/run/reboot-required tells you that a package update wants the system rebooted.
      If a service needs a restart, it will be listed in /var/run/reboot-required.
      The package(s) telling the system that it wants a reboot is listed in /var/run/reboot-required.pkgs.

      Same here. I get notifications of scheduled jobs (when enabled), but nothing else.

      very rarely will there not be an update at least once a week. So, if you login weekly, you shouldn't need an update notification.

      Ok, but if there is an option to get notifications it would be nice to get them (if enabled).

      But then people are going to complain that they get notified too often since there are updates available almost every day (especially when the Debian/OMV version is newly released). If people really want notifications, you can configure the unattended-upgrades package to email you with minimal setup and without automatically upgrading packages.

    • You can just disable software updates notifications, if you don't want to get them.

      But if you don't get update notifications if enabled, you must assume you also don't get any of the other available notifications like CPU usage, load average or SMART.

      I understand that but most people don't need to install updates every day and would probably want to get emails less frequently than daily but still not disabled. Personally, I update whenever I login.

      It doesn't work that way here. I have update notifications enabled but don't get any update notifications. I also have some of other notifications enabled and those do send notifications.

      I forgot there was an option for update notification. That makes most of my posts pointless lol

      I get mails from rsync and rsnapshot, but not sure if I would get any of the SMART, load average, CPU notifications. May be I should stress the system a bit more :D
