Update, update, update

[ #28070 ]

From time to time I see the "Software Update" window on the iBook.

Isn't there an option to tell it "Don't you ever again show me updates for this application"?

I mean... I don't use iCal, I don't use iSight, I don't use Pages, I don't synchronize my phone with the laptop and I don't need an iPod updater, as I don't even have an iPod!

So... why giving me a list with 10 items I have to read when it could give me a list with just one?

  • "from time to time" i see you posting this type of posts, and it's nice :-) Remember, OS X does have a FAKE "KISS" concept. Cog, your question shouldnt be "why this updates" but "why is this software instaled in first place" or even "Why do i use a MAC when i do not use my microwaves at home". Are you some kind of iMan using iPanties going to the iGym playing iSquash !? :-D (priv joke) Go ahaed take a byte... $pkg_deinstall -rf /var/db/pkg/* There is nothing forbiden about it :)
  • In the Software Update window, select the update that you do not want. Press delete and it goes away.
    • Er... There is no delete key on a Mac and there is no delete button on the app.

      But, meanwhile, somebody reminded me "hey, there's a menu", and there it was, an option to remove it!
