Description of problem:
I am using Severn and attempted to run up2date. I downloaded the new rpm's for up2date.
In accordance with the Red Hat document at:
...I issued the command:
rpm -Fvh up2date-*
...but nothing happens. On another machine running version 9 (non-beta), it works fine.
When I run the version of up2date I'm using (3.1.46), it attempts to register me. Even though I select 'existing account', it asks for my personal information. After up2date collects information about my installed packages, I click [Forward] twice. Then I get an error message:
Problem registering username.
I got the same results with 'new account' instead of 'existing account'.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. as superuser, run up2date.
2. follow prompts.
Actual Results: error message - Problem registering username.
Expected Results: packages retrieved and installed.
Is Severn updateable?
try the up2date out of rawhide, the one on that page is
for 9 (though, it should work as well, but just to rule
out incompability issues)
up2date-3.9.26-2.i386.rpm and up2date-gnome-3.9.26-2.i386.rpm
(or whatever version is there when you check, rawhide gets updated
I downloaded the up2date packages and attempted to install. Package for rhnlib
was also needed. I installed all packages and ran up2date. It says my system
is fully updated and no new packages are needed. I guess that resolves this
