Thanks for the tips, but this is unfortunatly not possible to do from
cron because some of the updates require a reboot to become active
(but all of this is beyond the scope of this list).

The underlying problem I am trying to address here is the fact that
rhgb has a lot of settings hardcoded into the main.c file, I think it
would be a good idea if the string descriptions of services and
various time-out settings could for example be set using configuration
files instead of requiring a recompile.

Kind regards,

PS I'm using a modified rhgb rpm now, that I have patched to include 
the description of my service and that does not switch back to vt 1
after 35 seconds of no pinging.
