I'm not sure that there is anything to register with.

One thing you can do is run up2date -u from the command line.

I see that you are a mandrake user as well, can you tell me why I cannot get mandrake to accept incoming dhcp from my router. I loaded mandy 9.2 and could not connect to the internet there was nothing in my resolv.conf file, I ran drakconnect several times, but nothing ever worked. I'd rather use Mandrake than fedora but right now I'm taking a C++ class to further my education for my job and since I do all my programming in Linux I do need the internet in case I need to look up code samples or something. But I'm running my PC on a home network and the router distributes the dhcp stuff. Red Hat and Fedora recognize and accept this fine. but for some reason Mandrake versions 9.1 and 9.2 do not like my setup or something.

I have not tried those versions of Mandrake.

Maybe something will be added to the log file as it tries to initialize the interface.

If not I would suspect a firewall blocking it, or maybe your server settings for some reason.

What is the server running?

Can't recall the number, but I saw that in Bugzilla, so it's a know issue. Like DavidPhillips said, it can run from the command line, Alt+F2, etc. Cool thing is to write a quick script to have up2date (or yum) run each night automatically to see what updates are avialble, and have it dumped into your inbox. If something needs updating, you'll get notice!

Now there is an applet update, If you run "up2date -u" from the command line and restart the applet it will work now.

Answer to opafire - potentially off-topic

This probably belong inthe Mandrake section - but here you go....

I had the same issue and spent a lot of time trying to figure out what was going on in 9.1.

To make a long story short - the fix to my 9.1 eth0 error was found by some dude (who deserves better credit than this) named Bruno Damour. His solution is described in detail in

http://archives.mandrakelinux.com/e...02/msg02555.php

The skinny is to add the following line to the ifcfg-eth0 file in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts:

MII_NOT_SUPPORTED=1

and to execute

/etc/init.d/network restart.

My network fired up perfectly after that. Hope this helps others and that Mandrake figures out what's up with ifstatus....
