Hmm, no yumex on this machine:
bushie> cat /proc/version
Linux version 2.6.9-11.ELsmp (firstname.lastname@example.org)
(gcc version 3.4.3 20050227 (Red Hat 3.4.3-22))
#1 SMP Fri May 20 18:26:27 EDT 2005
bushie> type yumex
yumex not found
This is a paid for version of RedHat.
I'd like to keep the main packages on the machine
compatible with other typical AS 4 machines.
Isn't there something that does a decent job from RedHat?
