Hi all,

I use yum-cron with my new CentOS 6-installs and rather like it. So much in 
fact, that I tried getting it to work in the older CentOS 5-installs I also 
have scattered at the department.

Unfortunately it doesn't seem to work for some reason. I found this; 
<<https://www.centos.org/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=22483>>, where 
it's suggested one use yum-updatesd instead.

Is this still true? Should one avoid yum-cron if using CentOS 5?
