I'm new to Linux, but have Red Hat 9 up and running... fairly well too!
However, I can't use RHN update as I get an error message saying 'problem with username' or something like that.
I followed a link on this site to https://rhn.redhat.com/help/latest-up2date.pxt
wheer it tells me the certificates ran out and I must update my rpm files with...
Red Hat Linux 9 i386
* up2date-184.108.40.206-1.i386.rpm - MD5 Checksum: 3faabcb9cc610627fe378b88d0b2b928
* up2date-gnome-220.127.116.11-1.i386.rpm - MD5 Checksum: 733d0aca17c15af0b1fa709ba86337dc
* rhnlib-1.0-4.noarch.rpm - MD5 Checksum: 82aaa7db64385b88ea189d790a2d50e0
* pyOpenSSL-0.5.1-8.i386.rpm - MD5 Checksum: e32103529436f320574388304a45d1a7
So I downloaded the files to my USB memory stick in /mnt/usb. However, I can't install the first two files. If I right click on them in Gnome and choose the 'install package ' option, a 'checking dependancies' dialogue box comes up and then nothing....
I tried installing them in a terminal window, but it just tells me file not found. I did 'cd' into the directory, but it still says file not found:
[root@localhost usb]# rpm -Fvh up2date-*
error: File not found by glob: up2date-18.104.22.168-1.i386.rpm
error: File not found by glob: up2date-gnome-22.214.171.124-1.i386.rpm
How come it lists the two RPM files that it supposedly can't find???
I'm puzzled. Can anyone offer some advice please?
