Software Update By SW for Mac2.7

14 May 2006

Command line runs Apple Software Update.

What is Software Update By SW for Mac

Software Update By SW runs a command-line argument to check for and install all available updates through Apple Software Update.

***THERE IS NO APPLICATION!*** (the installer IS the program!) When you run the "installer", there are scripts which run in the background and force Mac OS X to download and install all available updates through Apple Software Update. If you want to run the program again, "install" the package again.

What's new in Software Update By SW

Version 2.7:
  • More logging for system events
  • Log files now placed in separate directory (/Library/Logs/SISUWORKS/SoftwareUpdateBySW.log)
  • Reduced dependency on executing commands as root, due to the fact that root authentication is required anyways
  • Forced Software to only run on Root volume (currently booted volume) to clear up some confusion

Originally, I was going to write a comment that /usr/sbin/softwareupdate has been available in Mac OS X since 10.2.x. The description above is a bit terse, and on first read I couldn't understand why you were offering something that's already present in the OS. Here's the move verbose description from the developer's web page, which gave me my eureka moment: "A packagemaker script (installer) used for forcing macs to install all available Software Updates from Apple in Mac OS X (Tiger) in conjunction with NetBoot/ARD to run command on multiple macs remotely"
