    New Red Hat 9 installation...


    Hi,

    I just installed RH9, on their website, they show a ton of bug fixes and security patches.

    Question: Is there a way to download all the RPMs and have them installed in one shot? :o

    Kindly advise,

    Thanks.

    Run up2date. It automatically updates all the packages that are out of date.

    up2date is for security fixes and new kernels and some updates.

    atrpms kickstart is an amazing repository that can make installing applications very easy.

    see the atrpms page of the guide in my sig for more info, and also there is a red hat 9 page there as well.
