Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 184468
RELNOTES - Summarize the release note suggestion/content
Last modified: 2007-04-18 13:39:27 EDT
The FC5t3 release notes contain this command line example as the way to
download the current kernel source:
yum install yum-utilsyumdownloader --source kernel
yum don't know what it means, I don't know what it means, and I can't
figure any way to tweak it to mean something.
Thanks, this bug was fixed for the FC5 final notes. We had some problems with
the output XML from the Wiki concatenating lines of commands together.
That now reads:
su -c 'yum install yum-utils'
su -c 'yumdownloader --source kernel'
That is, use yum to install yum-utils, which includes yumdownloader. Use
yumdownloader to get the kernel source. Do all this using su -c, asking su to
run a command as the super user (root).
