Up2date packages flagged to be skipped
I've just installed Fedora 3, and have a red (!) button on the upper right-hand side of the screen. Yesterday, I clicked this button and downloaded a bunch of updates.
One thing that puzzles me is that I get a dialog headed "Packages flagged to be skipped". The 2 packages are...
In both cases, the reason given for skipping is "Pkg name/pattern". I don't know what this means. The "View advisory" button pops up a message saying "No info available".
At the bottom of the dialog is a message saying "According to your preferences you have chosen not to automatically update the above packages. If you would like to override etc..."
It was quite difficult getting my Speedtouch 330 USB up and running on Linux, and I'm worried that if I upgrade the Kernel I'll no longer be able to connect to the Internet. Everything seems to work right now, so I'm reluctant to "fix" anything else!
Is this a valid concern? If I upgrade the Kernel, what other problems might I face?
