View Full Version : RHEL 3 Updates

20th January 2006, 21:47
I have 2 RHEL 3 machines. One is registered and one is not. Neither one of them have any updates. The machine that is registered, I downloaded all of the updates BUT I did not install them. I ftp'd the updates to my other non-registered machine. Is ther a way that I can install these updates with out registering this machine? I looked at the up2date man page but I didn't see anything there that helped me.

Thanks in advance!

Are the downloaded files in .rpm format?

Yes they are in RPM Format.

If the rpm files where all in the same directory, you can try this: Enter the directory and execute this command:

rpm -Uhv *.rpm

its always nice to try "rpm -Uvh *.rpm --test" first just to see if there are any dependencies missing.
