I may need to bring down only a few packages. It would be good if it could be done in the style of say installing kde from the RHL 9 CD. For example, selecting install kde on the CD causes only related packages to be brought onto the HDrive. I don't think this selectivity is available via the ftp errata site. The question is how to proceed to bring down some meaningful packages. I certainly don't need Chinese characters and other stuff that's up there, and up2date seems useless to me at this point. Further it's not clear where to begin. Working from the CD is a lot easier, since the selections are nicely and clearly divided. I suspect up2date might be as well.
My subscription runs out Dec. 30. I do have access to a highspeed line at a local business I do volunteer work at. Suggestions? Ideas?
Some people download all errata packages, burn them on CD, transfer them home
and use Yum, Apt-RPM or Synaptic to install the updates. While Yum and Apt-RPM
are command-line tools, Synaptic is a graphical user interface for Apt. There
are add-on package providers for Red Hat Linux 9, like http://fedora.us and
others which can be found easily with your favourite search engine.
