Re: redhat updates add new prerequisites (huh?)



Yep. The -Fvh slip was a result of boilerplate text.  The perl errata
requires -Uvh; when using -Uvh, it should work properly.

(shameless plug) Also worth noting is that up2date solves all of the
issues; rhn_register will set your machine up, and up2date will
deliver updates.  https://rhn.redhat.com/ for details.  It's free for
home/individual users, so it may help in this case.  :)
