apt-get? red-carpet? source rpms? tarballs? So many choices... I guess it is up to you to pick your favorite way now.

I second Red Carpet. It's by far the easiest way to update ANYTHING.

Personally, I think it's hard to beat Gentoo's emerge for updating anything.

I haven't used Gentoo, but there's no way it can be easier than Red Carpet

johan: it depends how you installed it. If you're using redhat 8, then wait until 8.1 comes out, redhat release every 6 months roughly, that's by far the easiest. Otherwise red carpet or garnome will do the trick, but you have to be happy screwing around with your system to do that.
