Red Hat, Inc. Errata Advisory

Synopsis: Improved version of Update Agent available
Advisory ID: RHEA-1999:049-01
Issue date: 1999-11-01
Keywords: abort up2date e-mail notification

1. Topic:

An improved version of the Red Hat Update Agent is now
available. Visual confirmation of success or failure is provided at
the end of each update run. In addition, a summary of the run is
mailed to the address(es) configured to receive e-mail
notifications. This new version also makes the “Abort” button much
more responsive than it was previously, and fixes several other
smaller bugs.

2. Bug IDs fixed (http://developer.redhat.com/bugzilla
for more info):


3. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 6.1, all architectures

4. Obsoleted by:

5. Conflicts with:

6. RPMs required:

7. Problem description:

Abort button was almost non-functional in many cases. E-mail was
not sent upon completion of an update run. The list of packages
which the Update Agent determined should be skipped was displayed
before determining if the packages were actually present on the
updates server.

8. Solution:

For each RPM for your particular architecture, run:
rpm -Uvh
where filename is the name of the RPM.

9. Verification:

MD5 sum                           Package Name

key is available at:

If you only wish to verify that each package has not been
corrupted or tampered with, examine only the md5sum with the
following command:
rpm –checksig –nogpg
