    Updating packages in Red Hat Linux




    I have been trying to update couple of my RPM's to the latest ones. Can anybody tell me how to do that?. I also want to update my gnome desktop to gnome 2.2.1. I have the downloaded copy. But I can't proceed.


    Thanks

    log in as root, and type
    Code:
    rpm -Uvh package.rpm
    but I would suggest downloading apt for redhat. do this:

    Code:
    rpm -Uvh http://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/freshrpms/redhat/9/apt/apt-0.5.5cnc5-fr2.i386.rpm && apt-get update && apt-get upgrade
    note, that rpm is for redhat 9, other rpm's for other versions of redhat can be found here.

    now, to install gnome, type
    Code:
    apt-cache search gnome
    and install new gnome.

    installing can be done this way:
    Code:
    apt-get install package
    but, be careful, its a while since i used apt so there might be something wrong in this post!

    good luck
