Helix update doesn't provide any updates
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:58 EDT
I have Pinstripe on one machine and R.H. 6.2 with the latest Gnome,
downloaded from Helix code, on another machine.
The helix-update program never suggests any updates. This week I downloaded
half a dozen updates for the R.H 6.2.-machine using the helix-update. Going
to the same sites with helix-update on the Pinstripe machine suggested no
updates. Same thing previous weeks.
The Pinstripe-machine is using XFree 4, the R.H. 6.2. machine is using
We cannot support Helix packages as they are worked on at Helix. This could have
to do with the fact that all Helix packages to date are built for 6.2 and not
pinstripe/betas - loading 6.2 binaries does not work due to tool chain updates
(like glibc) - you will have to wait till Helix makes packages for the next RH.
If you have more problems with the installer please report them to Helixcode as
it is theres.
