It is recommended that new users use Red Hat Network (as described in the previous section) to download, install, and upgrade packages. Updating Errata packages from the Red Hat Linux Errata website is recommended only for more experienced Red Hat Linux users. This method also requires users to resolve software dependencies manually (a software dependency is the term for a package that is dependent on other package being installed).
All Security Alerts, Bug Fix Alerts, and Enhancement Alerts (collective known as Errata Alerts) can also be downloaded from the Red Hat website at the following URL:
Click on the Red Hat Linux version you are using to view a list of all available errata for Red Hat Linux.
Click on the name of the Errata Alert that you want to apply to your system. Instructions for updating the packages can be found on the individual Errata pages.
Red Hat tests and approves the RPMs posted on this site. RPMs downloaded from other sites are not supported.
