To install this new package on your White Box Enterprise Linux system use the Up2Date Network or Yum.

Note: Be sure to change the default Up2Date or Yum server from the initial location to prevent undue load to the whiteboxlinux.org server, which doesn't have a lot of outbound bandwidth. The config files already have entries for mirror sites commented out.

Up2Date's configuration file is at /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources

Yum's configuration is in /etc/yum.conf
