Hello,

We have had an OES Linux server up and running for some time. I thought
that I was patching it properly, but I must admit have been blindly using
rug to install patches. I recently decided that it may be time to
upgrade to SP2 so I began to research how to tell what patch level we are
currently running, this led me to the SPident command. I've pasted the
output of this command below.

My primary question is, is it possible that I have upgraded this server
to SP2 without knowing it??

I did NOT run the SP2prepatch. Again, I was simply running 'rug pin
oes:*' until I determined that everytime I ran that command it downloaded
ALL of the patches at which point I switched to using the rug command to
install each new patch individually.

If I update the packages noted below, will I have an up-to-date SP2
system? Also, why is SLES not mentioned?

Thanks,

Gary
