Up2date is no longer the best way to keep your system updated and install programs. Use Yum instead - here's some information on it: http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/yum/ Also, you can get it running the best by using the yum.conf from either here: http://www.fedorafaq.org/ or here: http://stanton-finley.net/fedora_core_4_installation_notes.html Please choose only one way to keep for updates - there are some version conflicts between Livna and the RPMForge group. A good way to have it all is to use Livna by default and add each of the RPMForge group, but change the 'enabled=1' to 'enabled=0'. That way, they are not normally active, but can be used with 'yum --enablerepo=dries (or whatever) install programname".

bob was faster and right. Uninstall it, use the Yellowdog Updater Modified.
Begin with a:
su -c'yum -y update'

and while you wait the download to finish read:
man yum

i did as you said about setting up yum..i typed this:
[root@localhost ~]# rpm -ivh http://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/freshrpms/fedora/linux/5/freshrpms-release/freshrpms-release-1.1-1.fc.noarch.rpm

and got this:

Follow this: http://stanton-finley.net/fedora_core_4_installation_notes.html#Yum The only difference, if you're using Livna by default, would be when you use the 'gedit' command - you'd change the three 'enabled=1' to 'enabled=0'.

I Friend i've solved , with your help !!
but i've now only one question,
if i'd like to install and not update one package like gtk and its dependecies with yum, how can i do ?

"yum install gtk' will install that program. If you open a terminal and type 'man yum', you'll find a lot of options for almost any circumstance.

or use
yum list | grep -i gtk

to see the exact name of the packages.
