Up2date, Aborted Downloads, and GPG


I'm having trouble with the updates initiated by using Fedora FC3's Red Hat Network Alert Notification Tool (RHNANT) - especially larger rpms like the kernel. With "Downloader for X" I have fewer aborted downloads, plus I can resume any that still do abort. As I understand it though, I'm sacrificing the GPG feature of the RHNANT by doing this. Is there an another relatively easy program/technique by which I can resume downloads and still have the GPG security (which, admittedly, I don't understand)?

Thanks for your help.

Trish

I had major problems with up2date with FC2 and 3 and fixed it by changing the mirrors in /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources
Basically, in the above file, there are 4 lines part way down the file uncommented. the first 2 point to yum fedora core 3 and yum updates released, the second 2 lines point to mirrors (I comment ( # ) these 2 out)
I change the first 2 lines to a uk mirror like:
yum fedora-core-3 http://zeniiia.linux.org.uk/pub/dist...ore/3/i386/os/
yum updates-released-fc3 http://zeniiia.linux.org.uk/pub/dist...pdates/3/i386/
Obviously you'll use mirrors close to you. The list I use is here http://fedora.redhat.com/download/mirrors.html
Once I've done the above, the updates download without any problems. Let me know how you get on.
Hope this helps

Steve

No problem.

It makes a difference, doesn't it? I believe that the default settings point to either Fedora or Red Hat and the servers are usually busy which is why up2date is such a pain before making the changes....but don't quote me on it

Glad it helped
