If you installed VDT 2.0.0 after VDT 2.0.0p11 was released on
2009-11-17, you do not need to do any of these update operations
because you will have 2.0.0p11.
Recommended method: VDT Updater
We strongly encourage users to update the VDT using the VDT updater
VDT Updater Instructions
Not recommended: Pacman update
If you really want to do it the hard way,
instructions for updating by using
Pacman directly are available on another page. This method is
hard to follow and error prone.
