Angry Update linux red hat


Hi all,

when I try to update my linux red hat, I get the following error message. I installed it once before on another pc, and didn't have this problem. How can I update my system without these annoying messages?

Thanks,

E-Rick

Error Class Code: 31
Error Class Info:
This system does not have a valid entitlement for Red Hat Network.
Please visit ...
or login at ... and from the "Systems" tab,
select "System Entitlements" to enable RHN service for this system.

RedHat sells RHN subscriptions. It's how they make money. Because you've got more than one system registered, and you only get one freebie, it is now complaining that your second system, which you apparently haven't paid for, isn't entitled. If you don't use your previous system on RHN anymore, login at http://rhn.redhat.com/ and swap your entitlements around, following exactly the instructions contained in the above error message.

Instead of Up2Date and the RedHat Network, you can use one of these two alternatives.

RedCarpet

Apt4RPM
