updating packages


Hi all

just wondering how to update certain packages. i've done it on another OS which was tinysofa, but we jumped to fedore core 2 because tiny was to slow for our site.

Is this correct yum upgrade mysql ?

I need to update mysql, httpd, vsftpd, ssh

TT

Go to fedorafaq.org and download the yum.conf from there. Replace /etc/yum.conf with the one from the site. You'll find it under the answer to the question where do i get software for fedora? Now it will download from other mirrors as well as just redhat's servers. Then, ttype

$ yum update (dont type $)

This will also install security updates (might be a good idea), and update all programs on the computer.

The Headers are little files that tell it whut and where all the packages are (I believe so anyways). It can take a long time. Don't worry, you just have to be patient . If it stops reporting output, hit ctrl+c and do it again. Don't worry, it wont start over, it'll start where it left off. Are you using the yum.conf from that website?
