    help with updates

    I am new to linux. It is up and working fine. Just when I try to run "up2date". I get "The system may not be updated until it is associated with a channel". I am not even sure where to start looking. Any help would be great.

    In a console/terminal, try running su -c 'yum -y update'. When it says password it's asking for the root user's password.

    The only thing I've found up2date useful for is getting the GPG key (what's used to identify what packages you're installing) for RedHat's packages. Up2date is pretty unstable.

    i use up2date but i agree it is very unstable. the best thing to do is just to ignore it while its doing its stuff. ive never had a problem with it then. if your using FC4t3 then thats why its not working. wait for the official release
