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.
Take a look at this faq and look at question 6
u2date is an eveil piece of undiscrible sludge that i not worthy to lick the test sector of my floppy try this yum install updates or yum install anything used to get rid of dependacies i also herd that apt-get was good
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.
