does "up2date -u" or "up2date -l" not work?
Comment 2 Frank Baier 2002-07-16 17:11:54 EDT
up2date -l and -u will work but no other parameter. I want only to download 
the rpm's!!! I think that it will be faild because a rpm is missing but all 
dependencies are ok!!!
Comment 3 Adrian Likins 2002-07-16 17:58:29 EDT
Not sure I understand. non gui up2date is designed to be used
non-interactively, so the the "-u" mode will download and
install the packages you need to be upgraded.

`up2date -ud` will just download the packages you need to
be up to date.
Comment 4 Frank Baier 2002-07-17 01:05:29 EDT
And Why will up2date -d not work? I work with all RH Releases in the last 2-3 
years an it will work. are there additional or other parameters? I don't know 
exactly because a can't validate it now, but I think that it worked also on RH 
7.3 but not on my Computer!!! What is different between -d and -ud? I
-ud make the same things like -u

Comment 5 Adrian Likins 2003-01-20 22:11:18 EST
