    Yum yum, I am gonna eat some lasagna!

    No, actually I have a question about yum. : )

    I have done a "yum update" once a month or so for a YEAR or more and everytime I get "no actions to take". It used to work and update lots of things .. now it does nothing.

    There must be something wrong right? There must be SOME updates!

    Please let me know what I should check and where to check it if you don't mind. : )

    With MUCH appreciation!

    check your sources
    if you have redhat for fedora core, they stopped supporting fedora core 2 about 6 months ago.

    Possibilities are fedoralegacy project or ART

    Nice, it figures. So what should I do? Upgrade? Is it FC3 now?

    If I want to keep what I have can I still use yum but set it to another server or something?

    Thanks for your help!

    Depends on your distro, Id say if you're looking for the cheapest, most conservative option try CentOS4. If you're looking for the latest features, then FC4 (when it works with PSA, right now it doesnt).

    In the mean time check out my archive, and fedoralegacy.org for updates.

    Thanks for your reply.

    I have FC2 now ... need to know what I SHOULD do from here?

    It is an inhouse server to host our own sites on, we dont make money with it so spending a ton is not attractive. I like what I have but yum never finds updates.

    Are you saying there is a way to set yum to get updates again?

    Should I upgrade the whole OS? If so what should I go to and is it safe/will things likely break?

    Thanks for the help!!

    as ART said the best way is to add fedoralegacy and his respository to your yum.conf, you seem to get updates every month or so this way.

    something like these 3 should do you, add to /etc/yum.conf.

    Code:
    [atomic]
    name=Atomic Rocket Turtle - $releasever - Atomic PSA-Compatible RPMS
    baseurl=http://3es.atomicrocketturtle.com/atomic/art/$releasever/
    baseurl=http://www.atomicrocketturtle.com/atomic/art/$releasever/
    
    [atomic-app-vault]
    name=Atomic Rocket Turtle - $releasever - Atomic PSA App Vault RPMS
    baseurl=http://3es.atomicrocketturtle.com/atomic/app-vault/
    
    [legacy-base]
    name=Fedora Core $releasever - Legacy Base
    baseurl=http://download.fedoralegacy.org/fedora/$releasever/os/$basearch

    Wow, ok I am starting to understand a little. I add these to the file, it checks his server .. got it ... the only question is how will it affect the things I have installed now? What I mean is I don't have any of his stuff installed, I use 4PSA tools .. would it update something that doesnt need to be updated and break anything?

    Also, as a side note .. my spam filtering seems to be getting less and less effective. Is there something that would/should be updated by yum that would keep the spam rules updated? I remember something about "Rules De Jur" or something like that being turned on or so I thought ... Boy have I lost touch with this stuff! : )

    I appreciate all the help.

    For all your rpm based packages, those channels would have updates available. 4PSA doesn't use rpms so you'll have to update that manually.

    On spamassassin, try adding in some other spam scanners (assuming you have my channels):

    yum install dcc razor-agents pyzor

    then restart spamassassin, it should automatically detect those.

    Ok so let me get this straight, I will edit my conf file and add your servers as posted above. Then when I do a yum update it will update the normal system stuff?

    For spamassassin do what you said and it will filter more spam a little better than now.

    Ok, doesnt sound too bad.

    The other thing is don't you do this type of thing for a living? If so, email me if you would.
