I am quite new to Linux and need some advice. I was having much trouble getting the up2date application running properly on a copy of RHEL I received from a training class. It has gone from bad to worse so I am wondering if it is possible to remove or force a complete reinstall of the up2date files.
I tried pulling the up2date rpm off of my CD & ran rpm <package.blah.blah> --force & even tried the "--replacepkgs" switch as well but got a message saying that on installs, upadates, etc., can be forced.
If I try to run up2date from the CLI I get "No rhnuuid config option found in /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date-uuid." back as an error.
thoughts? suggestions? condolences? All are welcome.
