R: easiest way to keep a Redhat 9 box

Hi,
if you come from Debian you'll like apt for rpm, you can download it from:

ftp://apt-rpm.tuxfamily.org/apt/redhat/9/en/i386/RPMS.extra/apt-0.5.5cnc5-fr2.i386.rpm

then google for some mirror (like freshrpms.net)...

It's very similar to the Debian's one. I updated my RedHat 9.0 with it, and then I tried downloading all the update rpm from the RedHat site: no one needed to be installed... perfect!

Goodbye,
Andrea Badaloni.

Oggetto: easiest way to keep a Redhat 9 box




Hi,



  I just installed Redhat 9, and I'm some-what used to using Debian and its
wonderful apt-get command, however I noticed Redhat lacked such a
capability. However, they had the RHN (Redhat Network) option which costs
money.



 Is there a third-party piece of software that auto-updates a Redhat box?
