RHEL 4 and yum?


My Red Hat Network subscription has expired. Can I use yum to update my linux? If so, where would I be able to find yum for RHEL 4?

Or should I just look into getting a new OS?

Thanks in advance

You could convert it to a centos box. You need to download the centos release rpm and yum and then upgrade your system.

CentOS is a RHEL rebuild, so you don't need to do anything else as long as you get the centos release rpm that corresponds to the version of RHEL you are running. Take a look at th ewebsite for more info (your question would have been answered if you browsed the site first).

ok, but I dont want to change my distro, I am also running Red Hat enterprise (4) and my RHN subscription has NOT expired, so how di I get yum working on my OS?

this is the results when I try to install it:

warning: yum-2.3.4-62.el4.at.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 66534c2b
error: Failed dependencies:
/etc/yum.conf is needed by yum-2.3.4-62.el4.at.i386
/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/libxml2.py is needed by yum-2.3.4-62.el4.at.i386
/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/rpm is needed by yum-2.3.4-62.el4.at.i386

I had a bunch of python depandancies too but I got them all cleared up. but I cant figgure these ones out.

I have a /etc/yum.conf file (but I have a feeling it is incomplete and I have no idea how to configure that)

the other two I have no idea about.
