I think that you should forget about rhn and use apt or yum.
is there nothing else that rhn is gonna really do for me.....besides tell when new rpm's come out (which i could just use apt or yum for). i was just wondering if rhn really helped in any other area, and if anyone else out there has had dealings positive or negative.....thanks guys.
if rhn is only something that informs you of updates and points you to the right place, then the only difference between apt/yum is that you don't get informed when something comes out. is this a correct understanding? if don't use rhn do you just have to be a more diligent administrator and watch apt and yum for updates? is that the difference, or am i misunderstanding the function and purpose of rhn, apt, and yum.
and is there really any downside to just watching for updates (somehow), and then just wget the update and rhm -U after it's downloaded. i'm trying to keep my servers secure and bug free. i suppose i'm just looking for the best course of action here.....all info, suggestions, and personal experiance is welcome. thnx guys.
