No functional package for updates via RHN

Description of problem:
No functional package for updates.
After installing Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Beta2 ("Client") I noticed that
it does not check for automatic updates. As far as I understand up2date has
been deprecated and is now supposedly replaced by rhn-client-tools and
rhn-applet. Unfortunately running rhn-applet-gui produces an error message:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/rhn-applet-gui", line 30, in ?
File "/usr/share/rhn/rhn_applet/rhn_applet.py", line 36, in ?
from rhn_applet_model import rhnAppletModelGUI
File "/usr/share/rhn/rhn_applet/rhn_applet_model.py", line 25, in ?
from rhn_sources import getSources, changedSources
File "/usr/share/rhn/rhn_applet/rhn_sources.py", line 8, in ?
from sourcesConfig import SourcesConfigFile
ImportError: No module named sourcesConfig
up2date is actually replaced by yum. rhn-client-tools and yum-rhn-plugin provide
the compataility layer to talk to RHN. rhn-applet has been replaced by the
puplet program, which is included in the pirut package. By default it is not
displayed on the gnome panel; it will only appear when there are updates to install.
Hope this helps!
