Description

Updated versions of the rhn_register and up2date packages are now available. The new packages include many bug fixes, and a few new features.

The rhn_register and up2date packages contain the software necessary to take advantage of CentOS Network functionality. The up2date package incorporates improvements in handling package dependencies and "obsoletes" processing, along with many other bug fixes. This release also includes an updated RHNS-CA-CERT file, which contains an additional CA certificate. This is needed so that up2date can continue to communicate with CentOS Network once the current CA certificate reaches its August 2003 expiration date. All users of CentOS Network should therefore upgrade to these erratum packages.

Solution(s)

  • centos-upgrade-rhn_register
  • centos-upgrade-rhn_register-gnome
  • centos-upgrade-up2date
  • centos-upgrade-up2date-gnome
