On 2008-10-22, the VDT team announced the release of VDT 1.10.1m.
If you installed VDT 1.10.1 after VDT 1.10.1m was released on 2008-10-22, you do not need to do any of these update operations because you will have 1.10.1m.
The best way to do the update is to update the individual packages that have
changed. To be clear, we do not recommend using
-update without specifying specific package names. Also note that you
only need to update packages if you installed them. You can see what packages
have been installed with:
Before you do the update directions that follow, please run the following commands. They apply for all of the updates.
cd $VDT_LOCATION . setup.sh vdt-control --off cp -pr $VDT_LOCATION BACKUP-LOCATION
The copy command makes a complete backup of your VDT installation, in case something goes wrong. Do not skip this step!
Note: if you have not yet updated your CA-Certificates package (released on September 11th in VDT 1.10.1i), some of the following updates may automatically include this update for you. After this update, you will need to do a one-time configuration to re-install the certificates on your system. Many of the components installed by the VDT will not work until the certificates are re-installed. See the full instructions
