Hi,

I am new to Linux and I am trying to install an application, I have Redhat 9.0 installed from CD and I need glibc-2.3.2-27 or later and openssl1-0.9.7a or later. Where will I find these patches(?).
thanks,
JDR

There are several ways to keep RedHat updated...the standard way is to use the redhat product called up2date....that is part of the RedHat 9.0 install. (this will update all your redhat packages to the latest versions ... and install security errata updates, etc)

For Redhat 9.0 up2date will be usable until May 2004.

To use up2date, you must download a version that has RedHat's new ssl certificate ... you can get the latest version of up2date and gnome-up2date HERE. (you want the i386 files up2date-3.1.23.2-1.i386.rpm and up2date-gnome-3.1.23.2-1.i386.rpm ... install via the instructions on the above page).

Up2date requires that you have a free RHN subscription ... which you can get here (if you don't already have one).

Once up2date is installed, you can run it from the command prompt (as root) with the command:

up2date

And select the updates to install.

If you are not interested in updating the whole system ... you can download the specific files you asked about here:

Hi,

I amtrying to install the following rpm's:

up2date-3.1.23.2-1.i386.rpm
up2date-gnome-3.1.23.2-1.i386.rpm
up2date-3.1.23.2-1.src.rpm

As per the refernce on the web site I am logged in as root and from a terminal session I use the following commands:

[root@redbox rpms]# rpm -Fvh up2date-3.1.23.2-1.i386.rpm
[root@redbox rpms]# rpm -Fvh up2date-gnome-3.1.23.2-1.i386.rpm
[root@redbox rpms]# rpm -Fvh up2date-3.1.23.2-1.src.rpm
error: cannot create %sourcedir /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES
[root@redbox rpms]#


with the first 2 commands nothing much seems to happen, the command prompt just appears on the next line, for the third command it returns that it cannot create that directory.

What am I doing wrong?

thanks,

JDR

the last rpm is a source rpm file...
you have to build it first using the rpmbuild command
it is the same rpm as the first one you installed but
it is the source rpm which you dont need unless you
need to rebuild the rpm for some reason...which i doubt
you need to....so other than that everything is ok with
what you had done...you just didnt need to do the .src.rpm file

Yep ... I don't think you need the .src.rpm either. (Unless you need to rebuild the rpm file for some reason)

To see if the first 2 worked, do the command:

rpm -q up2date up2date-gnome

If the result is:
up2date-3.1.23.2-1.i386.rpm
up2date-gnome-3.1.23.2-1.i386.rpm


Then you are good to go ... if not, use the command:

rpm -Uvh up2date-3.1.23.2-1.i386.rpm up2date-gnome-3.1.23.2-1.i386.rpm

to install those two files...
