update

By

Definition: update: daemon to periodically flush filesystem buffers. The update daemon flushes the filesystem buffers at regular intervals. This version does not spawn a bdflush daemon, as this is now done by the kernel's kupdate thread. This package is not needed with Linux 2.2.8 and above. If you do not plan to run a 2.0.x series kernel on this system, you can safely remove this package. update may still be useful in sync mode (as opposed to flush mode) on more recent kernels for the extra paranoid.
