As mentioned by another on this list, this isn't really the appropriate
list for such an inquiry, however, not to leave you without an answer,
for any linux distro that uses rpm's, yum - Yellow dog Updater, Modified
would fit the need. It's used extensively and is relatively straight
forward in implementation. You can find it here:

http://linux.duke.edu/projects/yum/

In the future, the focus-linux () securityfocus com would be a better place
for a linux related inquiry.

Subject: Patch management tool


List,

Looking for best free tool /open source solution for Linux 
operating system patches management. There are commercial 
tools available like Novell zenworks, Shavlik Technologies. 
But I am looking for non commercial option.

Some thing like patch distribution server which possibly push 
the recent OS patches to other linux systems. Linux 
distribution should covering RedHat, Suse other linux flavors.

Quick response is highly appreciated.

Regards,

Milind
