RE: [K12OSN] Red Hat 8

I use the following command to update systems from a prompt. It can be
chronned to run automatically as desired...

up2date --nox -uf
Take away the f if you don't want kernel updates automatically (I am
assuming you set your redhat update prefs with the default).

AFAIK, rhn-applet is just an up2date status indicator (i.e. you are
updated, you are not updated, or an update is in progress), whereas
up2date provides the actual updating functionality.

Any updating system (up2date, apt, yum, or whatever) you have in place
should continue to do what it was doing w/ rhn-applet installed. If
up2date was updating automatically, then it should still do that.
