    Up2date on Fedora 1?


    I just did a fresh install of FC1 and when i log in as user and see that icon that has a blue check, I run the up2date wizard to update my packages or whatever it updates and it just freezes...I am not sure if its doing its thing or what but I see no status bar running of any sort. Is it recommended that I do this "up2date" utility? I tried to install flash but received an error using YUM thinking that maybe my system was needed an update.

    Also - do I need to run this up2date utilty as root as well as user or can I just do it as a the user account?

    Thanks for any info.

    yum or apt?

    see logan5's answer, the fedora site reccomends yum or apt. personally, i use apt, and i find it much better than the automatic updater thingie.
