It appears rhn-applet doesn't like the redirects?  If you change it to
the below (comment out originals and replace with the URLs they are
redirected to) it seems to work:

#yum fedora-core-1 http://fedora.redhat.com/releases/fedora-core-1
yum fedora-core-1
#yum updates-released
yum updates-released
#yum updates-testing
Comment 3 Daniel Veillard 2003-11-13 08:02:54 EST
Yeah, we added redirect support to rhnlib which the applet uses
for Yum HTTP support, unfortunately the rhnlib API used by the
applet are not the ones handling redirection :-\
I need to fix this either at the rhnlib level or at the applet level.

Comment 5 Daniel Veillard 2003-11-14 12:31:40 EST
Version 2.1.4 should fix the redirect support and add file:/// 
support, check:


it has been pushed to rawhide,

Comment 6 Gene Czarcinski 2003-11-14 15:33:50 EST
Should not this update be posted to up2dates/testing rather than
rawhide (development)?
Comment 7 Gene Czarcinski 2003-11-14 15:36:20 EST
Works nice.  I also see that you have "fixed" the business about RHN
registering on Fedora Core.
