I don't know what to tell you - I didn't set it up - but I believe it
is simply "yum extender" not "a yum extender". Are there others? Not
sure how I can cut and paste from one machine to another, since I do
email from Windows. As for yum extender, there's no command line
involved - from the desktop, I right-click, choose system (I think),
then Yum Extender (although I think you can type yumex to run it from
the command line). It opens a window with several buttons down the
side - three of which say Update, Install and Remove. Depending on
which one you click on, normally it displays a list of related packages
(to update, install or remove, respectively). But all I see is a blank
window in each case. Does that help paint a picture?
P.S. Why does this mailing list default to reply to the individual
rather than back to the list?
