Updating Red Hat 9


Every time I use up2date it freezes. Does Red Hat Have a Website Like Windows Update Where it scans your PC and shows all the updates?

My up2date sometime looks like its frozen but its not. Its not unusual for me to wait a couple minutes until up2date responds again.

I have tried your idea for about 30+ min and nothing..........

I see if restarting my PC will work

Where can I get glibc 2.3.2-27.9?

Download your updates from here:

http://www.redhat.com/download/mirror.html

I never have used uptodate, I have no internet at home.

Download and install like regular rpm... :-)

Bewatch upgrading glibc - its risky! That's for sure!

Perhaps its best to compile glibc like this:

rpmbuild --rebuild glibc* target=i686(orwhatever processor you have)

Then:

rpm -Uvh -glibc*

But if you destroy your installation with these instructions, don't blaim me. :-)

Wish I would have read that 10 min ago........

I downloaded the file for i3xx and im using i686. ANd now it doesn't even boot up.

Is there a way I can fix this or do I got to re-install Linux?
