Problems with up2date


Hi all,
I have a redHat AS 3 box, when I run up2date --register and go the verification screen, the up2date program can't verify my username and password in redHat website and I get the problem registering username message box and the ssl handshake failure error message in the terminal window.
I'm able to connect to the internet from the Linux box,
I tried downloading and updating the up2date RPMs' and ssl certificates only to get the same results.
Can any one help me on this?
Rgds,

Up2date has always been buggy and generally slow. Up2dat is also based on yum, which is a much cleaner way to do the same thing. Try opening a terminal (if using x-windows), and do this as root
Code:
yum update
That should sownload and install all the upgrades available. You may need to import a PGP key or something, but it will ask you. Generally, all questions should be answered with a yes.

Peace,
JimBass

I've tried running yum update but got the error message
'bash: yum: command not found'
then I tried searching rhn.redhat.com for a version of yum package for Linux AS3 with no luck

You should make good use of google.com/linux You can find a compatible version of yum from here - http://linux.duke.edu/projects/yum/download.ptml

You may need to complie it from source rather than use rpm to install it, but it is a champ. You could also check your install CDs, I bet yum is on one of them.

Peace,
Jim

I tried the duke site and the CDs' but couldn't find a release for RHL AS3, I found for RHEL4 and tried it with ' yum update ' again to get a
'bash: yum: command not found' error.
I think it's bretty obviuose that I'm totaly new to Linux,
Actually what I realy need is some administration skills to be able to manage Oracle products on RHL servers

im running fc4 and it uses yum as a package manager also so im assuming that its the same. i got out of using the up2date thing and i installed yumex all that is is a gui installer instead of the terminal. i find it alot easier to use if you would like to try it
in an open terminal type in #yum install-yumex hopefully that will help u to using yum.

ok i just checked the command and its right when u open the terminal window type 'su' enter than type 'yum install-yumex' dont type the ' and if same as fedora core it should work since fedora core 1 is (from what i hear) in place of RED HAT 10. when i put the # in there that just meant to do it as root.

I didn't type the apostrophe with the command , I followed the instructions but nothing new happened, are you sure that yum will work with redHat AS3?

Have you tried to cd to the subdirectory that yum is in, then try to run it?

It could be that yum is not in your path. If that fails, I guess that you might try './yum ***'.

Not sure what that last post was supposed to mean.... but, here is instructions on source RPMs...

http://www.siliconvalleyccie.com/lin...m#_Toc91165213

Give that a try. Take note that it seems to only make an RPM, which you then must install.
