} My server has not yet been updated with all the goodies and is still a
} stock 4.2 installation.  What is the consensus about remote updating?
} Would it be better if I were to physically be there and do it or are
} things stable enough that I could do it remotely and then reboot.  It's
} kind of a PITA to have to go downtown to the C0-LO site, but can be done.
} Thanks..

we have had absolutely no problems on small or large updates as long as the
remote session connection is stable

i asked some time ago about remote upgrades over possible unstable tcpip
connection and there were a lot of good answers.

******* ok, i found it

yum update in background

was the subject... things like use "screen" or

nohup yum -y update &


anyways... i start to digress
