2) How to remove all games on fedora core 1?

3) How can I do automatic updates in fedora?

4) what is up2date and yum?

Here's a link to the Yum, Apt, Up2date info:

If you use one of these, you'll find that the dependency problems are pretty much solved. Personally, I use YUM about 90% of the time. Now as far as rpm's, here's another link - scroll down to 'Program installation' for some details:

Sorry about the games, though - I'm using FC2 and can't help on that one.
