dr. web updater email notification

sick of them yet!?

here’s how to get rid of those updates you get every single hour, every single day.

[code]nano /etc/drweb/drweb32.ini[/code]

Find the line that contains “CronSummary” (without the quotes of course :))

Ctrl + W in nano will open a “Find”, just type your text and press enter…

Simply change

[code]CronSummary Yes[/code]


[code]CronSummary No[/code]

Then its just a matter of restarting the drweb daemon:

[code]/etc/init.d/drwebd restart[/code]


You can do it the lazy way by editing the following file…

[code]nano /etc/cron.d/drweb-update[/code]
[code]*/30 * * * * drweb /opt/drweb/update.pl >[/code]

…and basically send all of the output from the script into /dev/null:

[code]*/30 * * * * drweb /opt/drweb/update.pl <strong>> /dev/null 2>&1[/code]

the reason why being (slightly annoying) that the output is still generated, and sent to the bin. why generate it in the first place? especially if the script has an option itself to not generate the output in the first place…
