Fedora 2 "up2date" problem


Hi people! Yes, Another n00b to annoy you :-D

I have basic Linux knowledge, and am currently running Fedora Core II on my AMD Athlon 750 PC. Its running fine, but I keep getting told I have over 100 updates to do. Ok, no problem, im on a 1.5mbit connection so shouldnt take too long. I run "up2date", and it seems to just hang there?

Anyone else get this problem, and anyone know of any solutions?

Cheers

Kevin

* Open a terminal as root and do "yum update".

I also foud this:

Quote:
The initial invocation of "up2date" will take quite a long time as it downloads all headers in the "Testing package set / solving RPM inter-dependencies" step.
you probably just have to be patient
