I'm still on my script to display the packages needed to be updated as a line in my .conkyrc.
The main problem for me is, that equo update needs root privileges.
First shot: add the command in sudoers with NOPASSWD. Downside: The script needs the user's password.
Don't get me wrong, I just wants to constrain the sudo commands as far as possible.
But now I came up with the idea to define an init process to just run "equo update".
As far as I know, I have to create a .start script in the /etc/local.d/ folder.
But I'm not sure, wether entropy is ready before a user has logged in. Furthermore: What dependencies do I have to respect? Which process initialise entropy?
Or does it makes more sense as initscript (like here described
Thanks in advice for helpful hints.
