Oh, so up2date is defaulting to yum? That's cool. I didn't
Actually, that's strange... 'cause the little ball applet
(The RedHat Network Alert Notification Tool) would change to indicate
new updates available before I had a chance to download and update my
local repositories, which is what I had yum configured to access instead
of the default ones. Is the applet using something else? I just
assumed that the applet and up2date were in sync.
Oh, I see now... It comes down in the channel information when
you first run up2date that those channels are yum repositories. I hadn't
run up2date with Fedora Core before (because it sucked so badly in
previous releases). Learn something new. Very cool.
