Mobile update daemon

(In case of download problems, use anonymous ftp:

mobile-update is a drop in replacement for the Linux update daemon to minimize disk spin ups and reduce disk uptime. It flushes buffers only when other disk activity is present. To ensure a consistent file system call sync(8) manually. Otherwise files may be lost on power failure. mobile-update does not use APM. So it works also on older systems.

use Cntrl-Alt-Del and the menue to invoke sync:

~/.fvwmrc:Popup "Utilities"
~/.fvwmrc:	Exec "Sync" sync
