rehat up2date


Hey,
I've run the up2date as root but notice that when I log in as a personal user some of the changes haven't taken effect. For instance, if I want to format a disk, I still have to run "Disk Management" in the system tools.

Is this normal? I wouldn't think I'd have to run the update in my personal account... but it just seems so...

Thanks for all the help,
Nathan

Can you provide more details about your problem. I can't seem to figure out what your post means, because up2date only deals with package management. Also what version of Redhat are you using.

There is nothing like you have to run the up2date for each user. Infact you can run it only as a super user.

me again

I have Redhat 9. I am now on the most up2date kernel. However, some of the changes haven't taken effect for my personal account.... not the root account. Does this make sense?
