rpm installing in redhat... any idea...


hello guys, i am trying out SuSe tonight (i'd admit that was quite some hassle for me to get the latest distro without ISOs available -_-) before i totally wipe of redhat 9 psyche from my harddrive... coz i am kinda frustrated by its rpm installer...

i was wondering, if there are ways i can "check" my list of RPMs installed wihtout using the good ol' terminal "rpm" way, or the crappy Gnome-rpm which was built in (and damn it doesn't show the rpms i custom-installed) ? I had no problems like that in mandrake coz it has a very nice rpm installer that lets u search for and customize installs of downloaded rpms from the net (only that mandrake has really poor support of vmware.. -_- the vmware perl script can't search for the kernel source code for recompiling if u can show me how that'd be great)

any suggestions will be great thanks in advance!

sincerely,
kaz

In SuSE linux you can use YaST2 -> Software -> Install/Remove Software. This nice GUI provide easy way to maintain your rpm packages.

Other than that you can install synaptic manually and it also provide a GUI Software Install/Update. It's a bit tricky to install and the GUI is a bit outdated but it works.

From CLI you can always do rpm -qa >> rpms.txt and open it with a nice GUI text editor ;-)


Have fun :-)
