Thumbs up YUM-the ultra packetmanager for updates!!!!!


Hi, all
YUM seems to become the ultimate Packetmanager .
II checks your system, fetches the correct packages and !!!!!!
libraries from the update servers and installs everything
smoothly in your system. !!!!!!
For RH9 the following yum.conf is recommended:
When running yum for the first time on your machine it
updates the rpm database ( takes about 10 Minutes)

Commands: eg: YUM iinstall mplayer (If you want..)

the yum.conf should be modified for the RH6 update servers.
You can add any other servers.

yum.conf:
[main]
cachedir=/var/cache/yum
debuglevel=2
logfile=/var/log/yum.log
pkgpolicy=newest

[os]
name=Red Hat Linux 9 os
baseurl=http://ayo.freshrpms.net/redhat/9/i386/os

[updates]
name=Red Hat Linux 9 updates
baseurl=http://ayo.freshrpms.net/redhat/9/i386/updates

[freshrpms]
name=Red Hat Linux 9 freshrpms
baseurl=http://ayo.freshrpms.net/redhat/9/i386/freshrpms
