    Redhat 8.0 Package Updates


    I recently switched from Mandrake 8.2 to Redhat 8.0 and so far I like the switch, with the exception of package updating. In Mandrake 8.2 there was a software manager that allowed you to define sources for security updates, ftp sites, local harddrives, etc... This was a nice system for installing different RPMS and helped resolve any dependency issues. My question, is there an equivalent software manager in Redhat 8.0, other than the up2date program? If not, is there one similar to the Mandrake version that I can install on Redhat 8.0? Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

    AS far as redhat distributions go the safest and best way to manage packages is via the up2 date route. There wont be a problem at all.
