There are many updates on the update channel for severn ... including Gnome 2.4.

Before you can connect to up2date and download the updates, you have to be a rhn member. Membership is free, sign up at RedHat Network

Once you have an account and have registered your system, login to RedHat Network and goto the systems tab ... select System Entitlements on the right menu and set your severn computer to Demo or another elegable account ...update and then select the Severn Computer's profile ...

In the top right section of the profile, there is an Alter Channel Supscriptions ... select it and then select the Red Hat Linux (Severn) 9.0.93 - Beta Updates channel ...

I recommend that before you run up2date that you edit the file /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date and find the line that says:


and change it to:


and save it.

(otherwise you will have to say yes to each file updated .... the severn updates are not currently signed with gpg....)

Now run up2date and update to get Gnome 2.4...and all the other RedHat Severn updates.
