updating yum packages list
 
my ppp version in yum is 2.4.2 I need 2.4.3 or upper

Code:


[root@uk ~]# yum list ppp
Setting up repositories
Reading repository metadata in from local files
Excluding Packages in global exclude list
Finished
Available Packages
ppp.i386                                2.4.2-6.4.RHEL4        base

how can I upgrade yum package list version?
I do somethings like this but the version is old yet

Code:

[root@uk ~]# yum update
Setting up Update Process

I think the problem is that EL4 is stuck on 2.4.2. EL5 is on 2.4.4.

You may need to try and find a later EL4 rpm or install from source

CentOS is just repackaged Red Hat Enterprise Linux, your probably using CentOS 4.x... and so it won't go higher.
