Re: Problem registering with RHN

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


So now if I want to install Red Hat programs, I have to use yum via the
command line?

I see that up2date is restricted to merely updating programs from yum

But why not:

1.  Make a yum GUI front-end.

2.  Integrate the yum GUI front-end with the "Red Hat Network Alert
Notification Tool", allowing the user to both INSTALL AND UPDATE any
program from the same integrated GUI front-end.

3.  Allow the user to browse and add/remove different 3rd party yum
repositories, perhaps based on a master list with which each 3rd party
yum repository would be responsible registering.
