    If you are installing a non redhat software, you must manually update the software. If you want to update the software while the entire system update is going on then you need to add the repositories of the software in the repository list of redhat so that redhat would know about it and will check for available update when the system update is taking place...

    Ok, i understand that it doesn't get the urls to get the update for the installed softwares... So how do i add the third party repositories to my redhat system? There must be a simple way to do it link configuring a text file? Most of the link configurations are done in a text file... Please help!

    Open terminal and type the following commands one line at a time :
    Code:
    # cd /etc/yum.repos.d
    # vi foo
    Now add the url of the third party repository and the authentication keys and other required information there and save the file. You can also use other text editors if you find vi difficult...
