When I downloaded LION I opted to do a fresh install on an external drive. I recently got notified of the LION update while booted into LION. I downloaded and installed it. However when boot into Snow Leopard, the App Store is telling me I still have the update available. I don't want to install it over Snow Leopard but I do want to keep recieving the updates while in LION. Is there anyway to let the App store there's a distinction?
QUOTE Thanks

Both operating systems rely on package receipts to tell it what has been installed and updated

when you are booting into leopard then the receipt is there, but not in SL

I am afraid I dont know how to fool the receipt system

I guess my next question, if I download the Lion update it won't automatically install on Snow Leopard will it?
