If you're running VortexBox 2.0, I recommend updating your VB on a regular basis (at least once a week). I update my VB 2.0 VBA every day, but that's probably overkill for more casual users.
* To pick up Andrew's updates to the VB software.
* To pick up updates from Fedora and Atrpms.
Fedora 16 is a new release, and Fedora updates it quite often. While none of these updates may be essential to operating your VB as a music server, it's still a good idea to update, much as you would update your Windows PC when prompted to do so by Microsoft Update.
The update can be done from the VB GUI Upgrade page by clicking the "Start Upgrade" button, or from the command line by
Note that it is rarely necessary to reboot after an update, despite the prompt to do so in the VB GUI. This is Linux, not Windows. The only time a reboot after update is needed is if a new kernel has been installed. Look for a new install of the kernel-PAE package. If you see this, reboot to use the new kernel. If not, continue on without a reboot.
yum clean all; yum update
Of course, you can also operate on the policy "it works, don't change anything". But if you do, when you decide to update, you'll have hundreds of packages to download and install. Personally, I like to have an up-to-date system, so things like DVD ripping continue to work, without outdated MakeMKV packages causing problems.
YMMV, but this is my opinion.
