Tried a few different ways, did not seem to do anything, what am I missing.

As you can tell this is really new to me but fun. Cant wait to replace are old win NT FTP site at work with this. I was able to get a few other Contribs to load using YUM, neat stuff, but of coarse this is one I really want I think, and it stumps me.

Is it ture after you go Linux you will never go back to Windoz:)

Thanks for the help.

Jay

ok, guess I'm not going nuts, I found this


http://forums.contribs.org/index.php?action=printpage;topic=41636.0


So sounds like this may be somthing a Noob should not play with. So with that any Idea on what I can use to add to the Server-Manager so I can get a good look at the drive space and over all general heath.

I did try this, but would really like in with the server-manager.

spend some time reading about yum and it's syntax on the wiki, there is a lot about it

the other link is exactly the same issue
the problem you had was that e-smith-formmagick moved from the alpha repository to the beta one

try
yum install --enablerepo=smecontribs --enablerepo=smeupdates-testing smeserver-hwinfo

I will have to read up on YUM, that part is really new for me. From what I have done so far I seem to like to use the "yum localinstall" don't no why but that way seems to make sense to me right now.

Thanks for the help,

Its still a no go, no errors though.

Ok, now I'm really confused. It shows as being installed but cant see the darn thing in the server-manager, very strange.


[root@your-stuff-will-be-lost ~]# rpm -q smeserver-hwinfo
smeserver-hwinfo-1.0-8.el4.sme
[root@your-stuff-will-be-lost ~]#

I tried this to,

[root@your-stuff-will-be-lost ~]# lshw
-bash: lshw: command not found
[root@your-stuff-will-be-lost ~]#
