Up2Date freezes
 
I'm running Fedora Core 3 and the up2date option keeps freezing when it tries to Test RPM dependancies.

I can't seem to get it to update no matter what I do. Is there a way I can maybe get yum to update all my packages in the terminal rather than using up2date?

i think its just yum update or maybe yum install update. i had problems with up2date freezing too but it would work sometimes. Yum is better anyway.

Yum is the best way to do it. Up2date is buggy with FC3, and I wouldn't recommend using it to update. Just type this into your console:

yum upgrade

That will upgrade all your packages for you. =)

I have noticed that today as well, I have been trying to install one at a time, I have upgraded from RH9 to FC2. Would it be worth it to go ahead a go to FC3, or should I just wait it out for awhile. Thanks for the yum upgrade command, working like a charm so far. What is a good book for quick reference to linux commands? I have the Linux for Dummies book, but I need something geared towards command uses. Thanks again from the Newbie, then quit and back again Newbie.

i took a linux class and we used a book called yoru unix the ultimate guide. It worked pretty well to me. yuo can get it on amazon but its kind of expensive. i havent really used any other books with linux so thats all i can suggest.

There are a good amount of them there. I always look their first when I need help with something.
