Not sure if this should go here, but I get this when I use up2date FC3 latest kernal

Error while retrieving package NetworkManager-0.3.4-1.1.0.fc3.
The message was:

An HTTP error occurred:
URL: http://mirror.web-ster.com/fedora/co....0.fc3.src.rpm
Status Code: 404
Error Message: Not Found

Then theres a ok button. When Pressed, it closes up2date.

It kind of happens to all updates. All I have to do is to reselect the update, which means rerun up2date, and now, I have 205 updates to do. I seriously wouldn't want to sit infron of the computer doing every update one by one.

Kernel is the latest.

Thanks in advance!

I have just installed Fedora Core 4 Test 1 and when I try to run "UP2DATE", I get this message

**********
Fatal Python error: could not import gnomevfs
Aborted
**********

What does this mean and how can I fix it?

I'm having problems getting up2date to work. I have Redhat Enterpise Linux version 3. When I try to run up2date in the desktop, I get a message saying I am not associated with any channels, but there are no channels available at the redhat.com site. Can anyone clarify on this?

I also wanted to try to get apt, and have downloaded apt-devel-0.5.15cnc6-4.1.el3.rf.x86_64.rpm to my /home/username directory. If it open a bash shell and try (as root) rpm -i --nodeps apt-devel*

I get: package apt-devel-0.5.15cnc6-4.1.el3.rf is intended for a x86_64 architecture

??? But I'm pretty sure that I have x86 as opposed to itanium (my computer is around 4 years old, had had the NFTS file system if that helps id any issues).

So, uhmmm, help?

I've found that using 'yum update' as the root user in the terminal works great. It doesn't require the download and install of apt and synaptic - it just goes to the repositories in yum, downloads and installs.

My current problem is trying to figure out how to configure yum so I can add repositories that will be addressed when I run 'yum update'. Several references are to configure '/etc/yum.conf' - easy to say but how to do it???

I think i've been able to get [i[apt[/i] and get it running. I ran an apt-get distrib-upgrade command and, well, it did alot of stuff or something. And no messages were like 'omg your are in a sorry state now' or ''get-apt, what the heck is that?".

Sorry to bother...

I'm not sure how to ask or to post questions so I'm going to ask and hope someone can help. I am working on a paper for school and my teacher wants gave me the topic of New Versions of Red Hat Linux. So I was wondering if anyone knew where I could get some info on that topic?

Thanks in advance!

up2date fedora core 3

I am a newbie to Linux.
I downloaded and installed fedora core 3 to play with. The install was successful and I ran up2date successfully to update the system. In playing with the system, I went to the rhn setup. I registered, but I did not purchase either Red Hat Linux nor the support so when it asked me a serial number I did not have one. No problem I figured, however, now when I try to run up2date it forces me into asking for me to register at rhn. What I would like to do is simply get back to having up2date work without hitting the paid rhn portion. Any advice?

Thanks

UP2Date

UP2Date is exceedingly slow. I recommend using yum update - that is, 'su -' to root and enter 'yum update'. It will install updates a lot faster and is pretty easy. There are instructions elsewhere as to adding more 'repos' (repositories) to '/etc/yum.repos.d/' for locations of other places to get updates. If no one posts them for you, let me know and I'll send the plagtiarized 'how to' on this procedure. There is also 'apt' and 'synaptic' that gives you about the same and lets you see what is installed and being installed.

I had the same issues and thanks to this and other boards, I got it to work much better than UP2DATE. It doesn't ask for a ;r'egistration....'.

thanks

I posted the question in this forum and in the fedora forum since it is related to both. Thanks for your reply, it is similar to the other reply I got in that both of you suggest going to yum. At this point, I don't know enough yet to have an opinion about yum, apt, up2date, etc, so the thing that is driving me more is not so much getting the updates as just the challenge of figuring out what is wrong. You always learn more trying to solve a problem than any other way. The initial learning curve is very steep.

I will take your suggestion about yum and I will go and figure it out. That will allow me to stay up to date, but I still want to figure out what is going on with the up2date program. Let me know if any other ideas pop to mind.

Thanks again.

up2date new version

Hello,
I apolog. in advance if this question has been answered already - just can't find it.

Anyway - I found out that RH9 doesn't have up2date version 4+ rpm. the latest for RH9 is 3.XXX.
thus i can't use any other servers but rhn ones to dl rpm and update the system. Which is.... well u know.

So the question is - how can i get version 4 w/o upgrading to Fedore?
thank you.
Andrew

Up2date on 64-bit Intel 4WS fails

I started with up2date but I always get:
(up2date:18825): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: invalid cast from `GnomeDruidPageEdge' to `GtkWindow'
*** glibc detected *** free(): invalid pointer: 0x0000000001195398 ***

after running up2date as root and clicking on the next buttons. It exits with this message. I tried yum and apt but the thing is I am fed up mismatched dependency etc., with those tools. Is there a one-shot update to my system as up2date promises?
