Description of problem:
In Console mode (no X installed) I've got only:
No interactive mode available
Please specify either -l, -u, --nox, or package names as comma d line
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run up2date
does "up2date -u" or "up2date -l" not work?
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!!!
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.
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
Is this still a problem?
closing,works with current releases
