About GNU Health Patchsets


We provide "patchsets" to stable releases. Patchsets allow applying bug fixes and updates on production systems. Always try to keep your
production system up-to-date with the latest patches.

Patches and Patchsets maximize uptime for production systems, and keep your system updated, without the need to do a whole installation.

NOTE: Patchsets are applied on previously installed systems only. For new, fresh installations, download and install the whole tarball (ie,
gnuhealth-4.0.1.tar.gz)

Updating your system with the GNU Health control Center


Starting GNU Health 3.x series, you can do automatic updates on the GNU Health HMIS kernel and modules using the GNU Health control center
program.

Please refer to the administration manual section (https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/GNU_Health/Control_Center)

The GNU Health control center works on standard installations (those done following the installation manual on wikibooks). Don't use it if you use an alternative method or if your distribution does not follow the GNU Health packaging guidelines.

Summary of this patchset
