Description

Installing Updates on Yum-based RPM systems (Red Hat, CentOS, Fedora, etc)

To update to the latest stable RPM packages of globus, use the command

# yum update

To install the version of a specific package for an RPM-based install, use the command

# yum update package-name
For RPM packages, the base package name matches the globus package name, but with hyphens replacing underscores, and without the extension. There may be multiple RPM packages associated with a source package, so add an asterix after the package name to indicate other installed subpackages. Thus, for the update package globus_openssl_module-0.2.tar.gz, the yum update command would be
# yum update 'globus-openssl-module*'
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
 * base: mirror.cogentco.com
