How does one update a non-GUI Fedora box.
Is there an equivalent of the GUI Up2Date program or do you need to download the updates from somewhere and install.

If the latter, what commands are needed.

yes, it's called up2date ;)

If you don't have X installed up2date just works in text mode.

Note that in latest FC releases up2date was replaced with yum, but they are very close in functions. So it's either

up2date -u


yum update.
