FC3: how to update Xfce from 4.06 to 4.2
 
So I tried using Red hat's up2date tool and it didn't have any repository for XFCE and i updated ALL packages.

then i tried using yum to update packages called: xfce4, xfce-w and no packages were found..

then i went to xfce.org and downloaded the graphical installer and the installer (in xfce under root) says:
Checking for package config tool... not found.

i was told to install pkg-tool but i can't "yum" pkg-tool
are there any package config tools for Fedora 3?

have you added any othe rrepositories for yum?

i found some problems to start with getting apps using yum

i added a couple more repositiories and it solved that

If you look on the xfce website, there are rpms for Fedora, which will upgrade 4.0.x to 4.2.

ok so i had to do a lot of stuff
first, for any newbie, i recommend installing yumex. it's a graphical interface for yum and it's very intuitive.. i searched for pkg-config and installed it.. then i installed xfce4-lib then i upgraded gcc and i also installed gcc for c++. finally i was able to get it installed but couldn't install using alsa but i'm fine without sound control.

Thanks everyone!
