Thanks a lot for your reply. You're right , I was not connected when I
first rebooted. I thought about it, and I first thought it could have
been something missed because nowdays we are all connected but I was
wrong :) <br>
I set back firstboot to rerun on reboot, but even if I was connected
now, I got the same invitation, so I assumed it was a decision you dev
took related to something else. <br>
As said before in a previous mail, I am interested in the rebuilding
process, and even if I am not a developer or a linux guru, I would be
very interested in contributing for what I can. Do you think you could
give me a starting point for this? <br>
Thanks a lot, have a nice day<br>

<pre wrap="">Hi, just installed, CentOS4 from DVD (first CentOS installation), and
after first reboot as soon as I log in, I receive a "Subscription Alert"
that tells me to activate my subscription to RHN so to keep my system
safe. Is this normal that I get on CentOS an invitation to register to
Red Hat Network and to download/install RedHat key? Did you ever think
about getting rid of this, just think it could be confusing for someone.
Just my 1 cent.
This (the subscription alert) only happens if the install is done
without a network connected and we have been working on this issue. The
fix we had for CentOS-3.x doesn't work with CentOS-4.x. I thought we
had fixed it, but it looks like under certain conditions it is still
alive and well.
The key import feature imports the CentOS key, not the RedHat Key.
I am not a python programmer, but I am trying to fix these issues ... or
to make them more clear.
We have made a lot of progress with up2date in CentOS-4 (it doesn't say
Red Hat Network in almost all places, all the menu items have been
corrected, etc.) Also, every time RH changes up2date, I have to
reverify all the current patches .. as there are changes in the back end
We will keep chugging along on this and all the other issues, thanks for
your input :)
