Tnx

Antonio

Or at least some hints

Jeff



Well, it is a little diffferent now then it was when I did it several weeks ago
because the packages have changed and the redhat ftp site paths have changed.


But, I have an RH9 box here, so what the heck....

wget http://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/rawhide/i386/Fedora/RPMS/fedora-release-1-1.i386.rpm

rpm -Uvh fedora-release-1-1.i386.rpm
[[email protected] root]# rpm -qa | grep release
fedora-release-1-1
################## NOTE, "redhat-release" isn't there any more.

I don't know if you will have to re-do this on your machine, but I had to do it on mine...

No matter what I did up2date said I had to rpm --import /usr/share/rhn/RPM-GPG-KEY
I also did /usr/bin/gpg --import /usr/share/rhn/RPM-GPG-KEY
That didn't completely solve the problem.
first, edited /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date and set usegpg=0
even on clean installs of Fedora I have found that the up2date processes
seem to have lot's of problems with package signatures.
and I also set the gpgKeyRing=/root/.gnupg/pubring.gpg


Then I went to init 3, shutdown xfs, xinetd, portmap, sendmail, gpm, syslog...
basically everything that isn't necessary for up2date.


Then I ran "up2date -u"
