what about the "hanging after download finished" issue
OK I understand that some of the posts here relate to issues with "the up2date server"
However, at least one post says their problem is that AFTER a "successful" download of the headers and rpm's the whole thing hangs. This is exactly what I am experiencing, and it can't be a network problem because I'm using one of the machines to make this post !
Here's my story in brief.
I installed fedora core 1 from cd's burned from downloaded iso images. The MD5's were fine and the disks passed the "test" at the start of the install process.
I have a large red and white exclamation mark on the bottom right, which in shrike would mean it's time to update !. I click the icon and up comes the up2date window.
Yes it takes forever to download a collection of hdr and rpm's into /var/spool/up2date, but it DOES finish that eventually. At this point shrike would tell me to click forward or finish (can't recall which) and it would begin the real work of installing the updates. Fedora core yarrow tells me the same thing, only when I click the button, very little happens. The app window clears and shows me a "progress"bar just like shrike used to, but then nothing. I've left one going for 24 HOURS and nothing seemed to have happenned in all that time.
The machine is perfectly capable of doing other things while the up2date task is hanging around, so it's not a "crash" situation.
Any ideas on this would be welcome !
