If you have a username and password that means you are a registered redhat.com user. If you have purchased a product from Red Hat with that same username, then you will see your support entitlements for techincal support as well as RHN for your subsciption period when you log into redhat.com or rhn.rehdat.com.

my up2date agent stops responding after the "channels" page where you can pick the channels. Do i have to wait longer and see if it responds? I have 195 updates because i installed everything and my internet was down for a long period of time.

thanks

I can't remember where exactly this would be valid but at some point there is a back button. This back button can be used to restart the download of headers and should allow the download to proceed by clicking ok again.

RHN Register

I had the same thing and just clicked on the register button. It began the DL process with no further actions. - albeit the time to get the packages was really a long process................ had to DL one or two at a time to finally get all o fthem.

I had heard that FC1 updates are only available from RH, i.e. no mirror sites, while FC2 does have mirror sites. Can anyone verify this? Maybe that is why it takes forever to DL the RPM's in FC1.

I just want to say thank you guys so much for all the posting. I was having the same problem and probably would never figure out what the heck is going on if it wasn't for all your postings. I was having problem running the cmds and having error msges. God behold, if you check the md5 checksum, it was different from the one I downloaded. So I tried downloading it again by just clicking on the link directly. Does anyone know why the file is alter when saving something from Save as Target and directly clicking on the link? Guess this is good info for future purposes.

Thanks a lot!

-happy camper now...but will be happier after I finally get everything else to work.

I think is easier if you have apt for rh9 instaled in your system. All you have to do is "apt-get install up2date" and apt will download and update all the necesary packages.

You can download it here:
http://apt4rpm.sourceforge.net/

This is a painkiller for package dependency hell.

Red hat no longer supports my architecture...

I have to download the updates by myself until i get a cpu with an architecture that Redhat supports.

But thanks for all the help guys, I really appreciated it.

Question apt

mkaman - I need some clarification re: APT. I have FC1 and FC2 and have used both apt and the up2date features. Apt is really great with little of the slowness of the up2date feature; however, can you shed some light on why apt doesn't get the latest kernel version? I notice that up2date will show a newer kernel but it will not be shown in apt. Does apt lag behind the up2date when newer rpms become available?

The resources where apt reads the available packages are not the same that for up2date.

In fact, up2date downloads everything from the red hat errata or fedora repository (i think) and apt downloads from other third party rpm repositories like freshrpms, dag rpms, at rpms, ... But nothing from red hat repository (still not).

Take a look it /etc/apt/sources.list and you will see the sites where you are getting the rpm packages.

If none of them have build a package with the latest kernel you will not find it.
And that's why you can find it in fedora. These guys are keeping your distro up to date.

This will change if they set an apt repository with all the rpms that you can acces via up2date.

pen shared object file: No such file or directory
error: %pre(initscripts-7.31.16.EL-1) scriptlet failed, exit status 127
error: install: %pre scriptlet failed (2), skipping initscripts-7.31.16.EL-1


Now I cant log into the system when I try to login I am getting the login prompt returned and I am not being prompted for the password.

I get this message

/bin/login error while loading shared libaries libaus.so.1: Cannot open ed object file: no such fie or directory liblaus.so.1
