Running yum nightly


I am using fedora core 6 and see no yum.cron file in the cron.daily folder.

Can someone help me make one?

Thanks..

You could just add it to crontab, using crontab -e (I guess root would have to do this)

1 1 * * * /usr/bin/yum [options]

You can also enable yum nightly update as a service if you don't want to mess about with crontab.

Thanks Chris!

I am learning Linux administration so I like to mess around with what I possibly can - however it is good to know their is a yum nightly service.
