After years of playing around with windows, decided to check out linux. So I am a very newbie in this. Matter of fact I just started working on linux about 2 hrs ago :(. Installed redhat 7.3 and now I am trying to update my system using rhn_register . I get a message which is posted below.
This is the first time you have ran rhn_register.
If you need special network configuration, such as a web proxy,
please enter that info here.

EOFError: EOF when reading a line
Any ideas how to update this system. Please guide me in every possible way.
Those RedHat utilities are pretty buggy. If you really want RedHat 7.3, go to rpmfind.net and download the latest updater RPM and install it with "rpm -Uhv <filename>" (where <filename>, of course, is the filename that you downloaded). I'm not sure what package it is, but it's probably the up2date package.
Otherwise, I'd suggest you to download RedHat 9 instead.
The REdhat 7.3 distribution is a good one, i havent seen this kind of error on my park...do you execute the up2date as root or as a normal user??
I executed the update script logged in as a root user. :(
