Do they each have a separate catalogue of what they've installed? If that's the case then they may only know about the apps/libraries that they have each installed, and not those installed by the other updater.

RedHat's up2date found 39 updates for me today..

I ran yum update.. and here's the output:
Code:
[root@localhost ~]# yum -y update

here's my yum.conf file:
Code:

cachedir=/var/cache/yum
debuglevel=2
logfile=/var/log/yum.log
pkgpolicy=newest
distroverpkg=redhat-release
tolerant=1

# PUT YOUR REPOS HERE OR IN separate files named file.repo

baseurl=http://apt.sw.be/dries/redhat/el4/en/i386/dries/RPMS

[updates]
name=xtra Fedora rpms dries - $releasever - $basearch
baseurl=http://apt.sw.be/dries/redhat/el4/en/i386/dries/RPMS
anyone have any ideas why this isn't working?
