Question up2date problem


I just finished installing Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and now I am running into problems trying to update. During step 3 of the registration phase, the included info to be sent to Redhat displays the following:

Red Hat Linux version: ERROR CPU model: ERROR
Hostname: ERROR CPU speed: ERROR
IP address: ERROR Memory: ERROR

I also get an hourglass cursor icon that does not do anything. If I click "forward" to send the registration info, the progress dialog box just sits there and does not do anything. Has anyone run into a similar problem? Any help with this is appreciated.

I personally hate up2date, but I would think its definitely something that isn't pulling your correct info for your machine. I haven't encountered something like this myself but if this is a legit copy of Redhat 3ES, it should come with support and they might have a direct solution for you.
