Description of problem:
Using RHEL4 WS beta 2 and trying to up2date the system, the up2date
tool   �hangs' in X11 environments (without any warnings) on the
Downloading headers to solve dependencies box. Using up2date in a
terminal (up2date -u) gives the following output:

Comment 2 Adrian Likins 2004-11-22 12:53:11 EST
fixed in later versions (4.3.65 for example)
Comment 3 Taco Scargo 2004-11-22 13:50:16 EST
4.3.53 is the latest version available for RHEL 4 WS Beta (2) on RHN.
Can someone push the new version onto RHN ?
