Apparently I'm missing something here?
All I get is "Update details," "Apply updates," and "Quit."
"Manage Repositories" may come up on another screen or perhaps the
problem is that presently I am looking at it from an F7 computer?
I just booted the F8 computer, it immediately displayed the PUP screen
and after being told to do the update shows as above plus a large
"Insert CD" error message which does contain "Repository Manager!" I
somehow missed that ...
Clicking on that tells me it is stymied by "InstallMedia Fedora8."
Clicking on "Add" brings up a form requesting information that requires
a "new repository." I could research that further but the GUI looses
its element of convenience at that point.
Curiously "yum update --exclude=tetex*" works without any error
message. That will do until I find what to add to the repo list. This
no doubt is the result of an upgrade from F7 to F8. I haven't done an
upgrade in a long time and thought I would give it a try when I was
offered the option from the DVD installer.
Thanks for the help.
