= 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-4.2.1.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.

= Installation Notes =

You must apply previous patchsets before installing this patchset. If
your patchset level is 4.2.1, then just follow the general
instructions. You can find the patchsets at GNU Health main download
site at GNU.org (https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/health/)

In most cases, GNU Health Control center (gnuhealth-control) takes care
of applying the patches for you.  

Pre-requisites for upgrade to 4.2.1: None

Now follow the general instructions at
 https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/GNU_Health/Control_Center

 
After applying the patches, make a full update of your GNU Health
database as explained in the documentation.

When running "gnuhealth-control" for the first time, you will see the
following message: "Please restart now the update with the new control
center" Please do so. Restart the process and the update will continue.
* Restart the GNU Health server
