    Code:
    yum -y update
    make sure you do it as root in a terminal. hope this helps.

    up2date always froze with me to. To me, apt-get RPM for Fedora is the best way to go.

    thx guys for the suggestions..but i think the problem is with the proxy...maybe the up2date its trying to connect to red hat server but it never gets to the server because of the proxy and that forces the "Red Hat Network" program to freeze
