SWUP is a free package management utility front-end to easily perform package installation, upgrading and removal. Dependencies are automatically handled, so if you try to install a package that needs others to be installed, it will download all needed packages and install them.

Prior to updating your OS packages with SWUP, make sure you exclude specific H-Sphere-related services from the SWUP configuration.

To exclude these packages, modify the corresponding part of your /etc/swup/swup.conf file, similar to this:

# ========== Regexps ==========
# Regexps to control which packages should be included in an upgrade
# procedure. Please note that exclude_pkg_regexp overrides
# include_pkg_regexp.

include_pkg_regexp = ".*"
exclude_pkg_regexp = "rh-postgres|postgresql|apache|proftp|qmail|vpopmail|ezmlm|sendmail|bind|rsync|pspell|aspell|ispell|gettext|XFree86-base-fonts|XFree86-font-utils|XFree86-libs|XFree86-libs-data|XFree86-xfs|XFree86-Xvfb"
