Description Xavier Cho 2001-11-02 01:50:08 EST
After installing RedHat 7.1k, I have registered and 
entitled my system to RHN but never get any update or errata 
from update agent.

 I've found a workaround by overriding version information 
to 7.1. A support person answered for this problem by saying 
7.1k is not a standard release and is not recommended for it 
may conflict with other packages.

 I don't quite understand the answer, but he hasn't respond to 
my reply yet.
 Could you please help me with this problem. And if you can make 
it clear about 7.1k not being a "standard" release, it'd be greatly
appreciated. Thanks.

Um, is 7.1k in the dist->channel map?

Are there any other issues besides this one?
Comment 2 Xavier Cho 2002-05-03 05:33:52 EDT
Sorry I can't verify your question on 7.1k since now all my machines are running
RH 7.2. I have posted your question to one of the local linux community site,
but still got no answer.

If you try now, does it work?

This bug is old and crufty, closing.
