swdist in short words

SWDIST - software distribution, installation, patch & configuration management

SWDIST is a framework for "software distribution, automated installation, patch and configuration management". SWDIST is designed to support any package based Linux system. The actual implementation is tested for SuSE Linux only. Any contributions to enhance SWDIST are welcome.

Functional Overview

Client GUI

On client workstations or desktops you can juse a client GUI. With that GUI the user can descide when to start optional updates.

There is also a command line interface (CLI) for all tasks, which are available via this GUI.

Of course on servers GUI based processes are not feasable for the software or system management, so swdist is also designed to be completly functional without the GUI.
