I've been trying to update my linux box for 3 days now!!! up2date in the taskbar says there are 335 updates. I ran up2date many times with various errors. I read that yum is better for Fedora Core 3 (which i'm running). So, I typed yum -y update. It took about 2 hours to download all the updates over dsl. Then proceeded to run a transaction test? That went for hours. I fell asleep and woke up to an out of memory error and the process had been killed. How do I update FC3 on an AMD64 with 512mb of RAM. Yes, I've modified the yum.conf to point to the approriiate a64 directories of the repository.
