Notification on Software Updates os x, Anyone?

Postby Chancho » Mon Sep 05, 2011 6:57 pm

I am trying to come up with a way to notify me when a remote mac, os x Lion, has updates to install. I was looking at

Code: Select all

softwareupdate -l
,but it needs to be run with sudo. Any ideas?

You could edit /etc/sudoers to allow it to run without having to provide a password. Not sure of any other method to grab software update status.
