Description of problem:
When starting Mozilla, I get a message that says I need to update up2date; I go
to the links, download & install, but when I do "up2date -p, I get a failure
notice that I'm not entitled. I go to
rhn.redhat.com/network/systems/entitlements.pxt and see the old name I had for
this computer - "perscom". During the load of RH.9, I changed this to
"COMPUTER". I see that, too. I set "perscom" to "None" and "COMPUTER" to basic
and exit, but up2date -p still fails the same way.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.run up2date -p
Actual Results: See Description, above
Expected Results: Successful completion of up2date -p, allowing successful
running of Mozilla.
I try to keep everything as up to date as possible, downloading and installing
all the recommended updates as soon as they appear.
The computer name shouldnt make any difference (it's the systemid
number in /etc/sysconfig/rhn/systemid that is the identifier).
That may be so, and fine, but the fact remains that up until this time I could
run up2date and update my system; now I cannot. What must I do to correct this
I have apparently fixed the problem. I located a "systemid.save" file in
/etc/sysconfig/rhn. I copied systemid to systemid.suspect and used vi to copy
the checksum number and the ID number from systemid.save to systemid. A
susequent run of up2date allowed me to obtain the latest pine update, so it
appears to work now.
