Today I finally got around to making a Fedora 17 Linux Bash Script to automate my yum updates. It’s been on my todo list for a few months since I migrated over to Fedora 17. This simple bash script will firstly update yum itself, then it will run a complete system update. Everything will be logged to a file for verification at a later date.
I just recently found this nifty little Linux package called ‘Conky’. It’s a great way to monitor all sorts of things in Fedora 17 Linux. Most of the install guides and downloadable configurations are aimed at Ubuntu Linux, so I decided to write up this post to help anyone that stumbles along the same path as myself.
I have made a few customisations to my dedicated server over the years, one of which is a custom login message with a full coloured display.
I have posted the code below for you all to inspect and use at your own discretion.
Have fun all!
