rhn_register


I am trying to install and setup RHN updates, but have the following problem when running rhn_register:

When I type rhn_register, I go to the initial screen and then click on next. After that it will take me to the next screen which is just blue with Red Hat RHN Registration at the top and the keyboard commands at the bottom. It will just sit there until killed. I am running 7.2 without any firewalls and have all the proper RPMS installed.

Thanks.

Try running it in console mode and see if it works.

Specific

Can you be a little more specific. I am using everything from the command line.

Thanks.

Ah. When you said you "clicked on next" I assumed that you were running it from x-windows. Dunno then.

First delete your gnupg keys by doing:

rm -rf /root/.gnupg

then rerun rhn_register and re-register.
