In a default config the minemeld-auto-update utility connects once per day to MineMeld auto update API to check if a new version of a MineMeld package has been released. If a new version is detected, the package is automatically downloaded and installed.


It is possible to prevent this by deleting the auto update cron job:

$ sudo rm -rf /etc/cron.daily/minemeld-auto-update

To reenable the auto update cron job, create the file  /etc/cron.daily/minemeld-auto-update with the following contents:


/usr/sbin/minemeld-auto-update >> /var/log/minemeld-auto-update.log 2>&1

 and mark it as executable.


And how can i enable it again?
