Up2date patches for RH-Linux 9???


I'm as much a RedHat Linux noob as you'll probably find and I am having trouble updating my up2date thing so I can get the security updates and stuff like that. I just purchased RHL 9 the other day and I have a dual booting WIN XP/RedHat Linux 9 system.

Obviously I was able to get the DSL working but I can't seem to figure out how to install the updates for the up2date thing. I have yet to configure my printer, gfx card etc. because I don't want to mess up my system.

My first question is how can I properly without messing up any files on my system get the RHNetwork up2date working? I have done everything that they told me to except downloading and installing the patches for it so I can successfully connect and get the updates. I have never installed anything on a Linux system, I'm used to the Windows installing junk. I'm not a total idiot but if possible please make responses as detailed as possible so I don't mess up hehe!

Thanks in advance everyone, I greatly appreciate any help you give me.

Thank you very much. I just visited that page and a few others it led me to and I have a couple questions. Am I to download the SRPM's, GNome and i386 for my distribution? I have downloaded them but I don't want to run anything unless I'm for sure.

What does this mean? I downloaded the 3 files but I got this error, is there an order of installation? Thank you everyone

[stealth@localhost stealth]$ rpm -Fvh /home/stealth/up2datefiles/up2date-3.1.23.2-1.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
up2date = 3.1.23 is needed by (installed) up2date-gnome-3.1.23-1
[stealth@localhost stealth]$

It looks like you have 3.1.23-1 already installed.

I would try rpm -Uvh to Update the current install to 3.1.23-2

Yes, order does frequently count but I don't think that is the problem here.
And don't worry; getting the order wrong doesn't break anything it just won't install until you have satisfied the dependencies.
Cheers,
alar

Grrrrr. This is so why I do not like rpm.
I tried like you did and got the same error.

synaptic says up2date 3.1.23.1 Package is installed Size: 2319K

can't rpm -e up2date-3.1.23.2-1.i386.rpm
# rpm -e up2date-3.1.23.2-1.i386.rpm
error: package up2date-3.1.23.2-1.i386.rpm is not installed

I tried rebuilding rpm database
rpm -vv -rebuilddb

Still no go.
I'm not going to go on about how wonderful synaptic is either because I have had troubles
with it once before where it removed a bunch of files I needed, not the least of which was my apache install.... (It was my synaptic package was out of date...)

Other than that: all is well; thanks for letting me rant

Looking forward to hearing a reply to this one!
cheers,
alar

I was on the phone for a couple hours so I missed your post until now. After reading them I tried the following.

For each of the 3 files I downloaded to update my up2date I ran the following commands.

[stealth@localhost stealth]$ rpm Fvh /home/stealth/up2datefiles/up2date-3.1.23.2
-1.src.rpm
RPM version 4.2

[--buildpolicy=<policy>] [--with=<option>] [--without=<option>]

Then I ran the same command except putting in the Uvh thinking it would update the new install I think the Fvh command does and I got the exact same response. I ran both the Fvh and Uvh for all 3 files getting the list of stuff above. I didn't get any errors this time but when I tried again to connect to the RHNetwork it gave me a user name error problem. I double checked my user name/password and successfully logged into the RHNetwork website. I'm going for a reboot and then give it a try again in hopes it might refresh something?

I don't know how useful this might be but before I tried entering the commands I double clicked and ran all 3 of these files, and a small window with a preloader looking bar quickly poped up and dissappeared. I think it installed all 3 of them maybe?

I am extremley new to RH and the commands I ran above were my first attempts of installing anything. If rebooting fixes me up I'll post it, if not I'll be back to the drawling boards. Fortunately, I am so sick of crappie WinXP I don't care if it takes me 3 weeks to figure this out alone I will not go back to Windows period....

Again, thank you for your kindness in your responses. It's nice to see helpful people such as yourselves, and as I learn I will help others on this forum no matter their questions.

I rebooted and was unsuccessful. I just tried mkorpel's advice and got the following results.

I doubled clicked the file after I unsuccessfully followed mkorpel's command instructions and got the following results.

I just recieved a new error when trying to connect again, possibley my problem?

It said network name wrong or something like that. I made a ss of the info of my host name/ ip and stuff and is more than likely wrong. You can view the ss at http://www.boomspeed.com/danarchy/Screenshot.png ......... It says my ip is 127.0.0.1 and my host name is localhost.localdomain and I think this may need an actual hostname and real ip? Sorry to basically spam this forum but I thought unless you all saw this info you may not be able to help me.

Thanks again,

Stealth

The computer world is unfortunate. I say this because companies like Microsoft do not care about anything but money. Instead of developing good OS's they put bounties on crackers that will only drive them deeper underground, make them more determined and even harder to catch.

Companies like Red Hat try to help but have so little finances they can't even afford to give newbs like myself instructions I'll easily understand to do something as simple as using there update service. I payed $40.00 for my dist. to get some tech support, but the tech support is so bad the 30 day update servive is long gone before a newb gets anywhere. Thus, it seems like even Red Hat is running a bit of a scam, intending there os's for users that already know there os's and not users wanting to get away from the Microsoft BS.

I've been studying computers for 3 1/2 years in and outside of college and can't get an update service to work without jumping back and forth from person to person only to find myself away from my studies and still nothing. The problem is development is not easy and to many easy roads are taken instead of doing the job right. With the help I was given I realized that this OS is not very complicated or hard to use at all, it just has foreign commands that Red Hat apparently doesn't have time to explain in one of the most important things a home user will do, get security updates. I am not upset with linuxquestions.org I actually think it's a great site I am upset with Red Hat. When I am not a noob I will be back, but this time to help.

I'm off to the store to spend more money I don't really have to learn something I thought I already payed to learn. Cheers, and thanks for your replies!!!!!

Based on our earlier experiences, I suggested you already had a version of up2date installed. I have updated my web page.
http://www3.sympatico.ca/arothmel/ht...uxMusings.html
Look at the bit named Synaptic Package Manager...
This way at least you can install the up2date package.
And then probably cert will work.
Hope this helps,
alar

save yourself the hassle and grab apt-get for RPMs:
http://apt.freshrpms.net/
"rpm -Uvh apt-0.5.5cnc6-fr1.i386.rpm" to install the package
put "rpm http://ayo.freshrpms.net redhat/9/i386 os updates" in your /etc/apt/sources.list
then do a "apt-get update" which updates the current package list, then "apt-get dist-upgrade" which downloads and upgrades every package available.
yes up2date is pointless

My sediments exactly!
Thanks for the link to apt-get. I think you need it before Synaptic. I'll add it
to my RPM woes right now!

Hey stealth, at least we aren't the only ones

Hey, thanks a lot everyone. It's been a couple days since I've posted that and I haven't checked my e-mail until now. I'm very busy with school work so it won't be until tomorrow that I can try your advice.

Thanks again,

stealth
