Unhappy up2date won't connect just freezes

I am new to FC2 as of 10/07/04

My Linux experience started with Mandrake 9.1 and is currently at 9.2. I have had good results with 9.2. I have not had any success getting 10.0 or 10.1 to run properly and now I am giving Fedora Core 2 a test run.

Having trouble getting up2date to connect to the RHN, it starts to connect and just freezes.

I am still getting familiar with the differnce between Mandrake and Fedora.

Any ideas what could be causing it?

In the past, with up2date, I had some success by changing the mirrors in /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources .. - however, the preferred option is to use YUM now - for an introduction to YUM, check out:

For me I can almost NEVER USE THE UP2DATE GUI!!! As you can see it really bugs me. So I open a terminal and type
sudo up2date -u --nox
It will perform an update within the console, and tell the gui to piss off. Pardon my language.

Yum is real cool. Everything eventually was updated.

Install apt and Synaptic as well for good measure.
