Hi all

Having installed FC6 and got it running, I have a problem with updater

I get the window "42 updates available" or what ever , click on the update, let it run, then reboot the system as it says

I then get a window pop up "42 updates available" wtf.. I just spent 15 mins installing them :mad:


Plus totum has been ill since an update before xmas

I would suggest disabling yum-updatesd
save your settings and exit
then open a terminal and type
yum clean all
and you should be good to go
whether you disable yum-updatesd or not you should still run
yum clean all

which repositories do have enabled?
what exactly is wrong with totem?

Totem just keeps coming up with an error message "cannot open resource for writing" before shutting down

As for the yum stuff I'll try that tommorrow

Nope still does'nt work, after a yum clean all and a reboot then run the updater,and anothe rreboot I still get "there are 42 updates" message

Guess I'll just have to disable the yum updater
