Fedora 6 News Server


Does anyone know the default news server shipped with Fedora 6? How about a good news server to setup in Fedora 6?

As support for FC6 is set to be dropped in about a month I would upgrade the system and then set up the news server.

Do you mean a news server or a news reader?

Since I am just trying to learn Fedora I am going to stick with this version until I feel comfortable upgrading to the current one. Plus I bought a huge book that cost me $50.00, LOL.

Anyway I do mean a news server (want to learn how to set it up). Also, is there something compatible to the Windows remota access client for Fedora? I haven't had too much luck so far using the X-Windows clients to access the entire graphical interface without errors cropping up.

That is the problem with buying a book about Fedora, by the time they are out and reviewed the next version is out. That being said about 90% of the information is usually true for most versions of Fedora.

Leafnode would be worth a look for a news small server.

Rdesktop is compatible with windows RDP. VNC is the "standard" method for remote access on Linux. Openssh would be the text version.

All the above is available via yum.

My kernel version is: 2.6.20-1.3002.fc6xen. Is there a way to update the OS using yum?

Assuming you have a internet connection.

yum check-update

Will tell you what is available.

You can install all of them with:

yum update

If there are a lot of updates you are better off if you split them up.

yum update a*

Updates all packages starting with "a".

The rest you can check by:

man yum

Good Luck

okay thanks... then I have the latest of everything. I did the yum update after I installed the system and got all 400 and then some updates. I am going to check once a week for additional updates.
