Great article. However, after conducting a “find / | grep yum-updatesd” I got zero hits on a RHEL 5.2 box.

Where is the file? Is there another file to perform the same task?

Install yum-updatesd

yum remove yum-updatesd

Shouldn’t that be

`yum install yum-updatesd`

I had to install it on Fedora 9.

8SAFAD: No but you can set smtp_server = [YOURSMTPSERVER:YOURPORT]

I could send emails without email server being installed only if you setup the system to use an external email server.

Btw, linux by default is coming with email server setup only to serve localhost, so there is nothing to worry about.
