Description Thiago Vinhas 2000-12-21 15:55:31 UTC
Hi!

I was using up2date to download the glibc-devel-2.2-9.i386.rpm package using the command up2date -u (I'm registered with the RedHat Network). When it was on something about 70/75 % it has crashed. Here is the complete output:

[thiago@sampa-novo ~]$ up2date -u

Is the error repeatable?  I.e. does it happen consistently?  

If so, please remove all files in /var/spool/up2date and try again.  If the 
error still persists, re-open this bug.  Also, please make sure you have the 
latest errata version of Up2date.
