See the FC1 release notes for details -

Cheers, Ben



OK, thanks all. I'll se what the release notes have to say on this and
give removing Galeon a whirl as I don't use it.
I guess I have it installed because my FC1 install is really an upgrade
install from RH9 which I presume had Galeon. Can I expect to see more hitches like this due to the upgrade rather than clean install?


Kind regards,

Mike


Yes... "up2date --show-orphans" should show you any upgrade leftovers
(as well as non-FC1 extras).

Thanks all,

The rpm -e for galeon then allowed up2date to pull down all the updates just fine.

I then ran the show-orphans and it lists a whole bunch of packages. Other than a couple of things that I've installed later (wine and j2kre 1.4) are all these things just taking up disk space? If I remove them as well (rpm -e) will it cause me any problems? That is, my FC1 install is an upgrade from RH9, so I am presuming that these "extra" things are left-overs from RH9 that are no longer required for FC1 and could be removed. The list of packages follows for those interested...

  --show-orphans
              List all packages currently installed that are not
              present in channels the server is subscribed to.
