Re: [K12OSN] apt-get question

Yeah, only the syntax is "apt-get install 'package name'". You don't have
to include the version. Say you want to upgrade samba swat. Do an apt-get
install samba-swat. It'll look at your version number and compare it with
the one on its update list and determine if you need to upgrade or not. By
the way before you do any of this always do an "apt-get update" first so
it'll grab new update lists.
