Now the best part: Let's say you've got 20 Su SE Linux desktops in your network, or even 200.You certainly don't want to open each and every desktop, run Ya ST and type in the directory information in a dialog box to get this update going. The dialog box is just a graphic interface for a simple text file located at /var/lib/Ya ST2/you/youservers.
Then, you open Ya ST to the YOU Server Configuration Module.
