OK, I'll re-read this the next time it's not working.

Until it hurts too much.

As I said, I'm not a Linux guy.  After a google search I tried this:

[root at finny12 dufault]# yum  --disableplugin=fastestmirror update
Loaded plugins: presto, refresh-packagekit
No plugin match for: fastestmirror
Setting up Update Process
No Packages marked for Update
[root at finny12 dufault]# 


So, in your (humble) opinion what's the most painless way to stay up to date with RTEMS tools?  As I said, I'm using Fedora 12, I'll happily try anything you think is better, and as I said, you're doing all the work.
