Re: [K12OSN] apt-get question



Hi all,

RH 8.0
I have
 
apt-0.5.5cnc4.1-fr1.20030325a.0.rh80.4
apt-devel-0.5.5cnc4.1-fr1.20030325a.0.rh80.4

installed, running on my OS

Can I use "apt-get upgrade 'package name'" to upgrade to its latest
version similar to up2date?  Apart form "man" where can I find its
documentation?  Any URL would be appreciated.

B.Regards
Stephen Liu
