rhn rpmnew files (long)



RHEL3.9

Hi All:

I have been in the habit of updating our system on a weekly basis but
I have not been as faithful in reconciling the .rpmnew and .rpmsave
files. This afternoon I took the time to chase down the last of these
and have managed to eliminate all but 2. Both of these belong to the
rhn package. The rhn package seems to be working fine so I do not
believe they are critical but I would like take care of them. I have
done a bunch of Google searches but without much luck in finding
anything applicable. If someone out there can point me in the right
direction I would greatly appreciate it.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

The first one is rhn-applet.rpmnew and is from 2004. A diff with the
current file reports (I have masked the uid value in case it is
sensitive):

[root pgiprd rhn]# diff rhn-applet rhn-applet.rpmnew
4c4
< server_url=https://www.rhns.redhat.com/APPLET
---
> server_url=https://xmlrpc.rhn.redhat.com/APPLET
7c7
< uuid=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
---
> uuid=UNSPECIFIED

Can anyone advise where are the correct values?

----------------------------------------------------------------------

The second one is the up2date.rpmnew and is also from 2004. A diff
with the current file reports:
