problems updating fedora 2 system using add/remove programs


im trying to update my system because i just reinstalled fedora 2 and i didn install (im not sure what the file is but im missing the wish command)
i try and update my system with new packages, and when it asks me to change cd i change the cd, click the ok button to carry on with the update i get this error:

The disk was unable to be accessed for reading. Please confirm that it is in the drive and try again.

i have tried umounting and then mounting the cd and that didn help . can anyone give me and advice ?

Ben

If you have a broadband connection, you can download apt and it's gui synaptic from the rpm repository at http://fedora.us . Apt is a powerful tool that can update your system with just a few commands or clicks. I find that that the default package manager in fedora/redhat is not very good and I always have problems with it.

the wish command belongs to the tk package.

tcl rpm is on CD1 and tk and tclx rpms are on CD4

From a terminal window or console, (Ctrl-Alt-F1), type the command

#rpm -q tcl
#rpm -q tk

this will let you know whether these packages are installed. if you want to install the packages,

#rpm -ivh <package name>
