Add/Remove Software in Fedora Core-5
 
In my Fedora-5 system,ADD/REMOVE Software is not working..whenever i want to see the installed packages i go to Applications menu and click Add/Remove Software and then the window opens telling"retrieving information" and after sometime the window quits..what's wrong??
This was not a problem for earlier versions of FCore Linux....

Have you already tried running this (console command):
Code:

rpm --rebuilddb
Which, afaIk, should make sure your rpm-packet database (what's installed etc.) is up to date and thus won't cause problems. And you should also try running the tool you mentioned as root (well don't do that all the time, just try it once!) to see if it works -- if yes, then you've got a permissions problem. If not, then I suggest you run it from the console so you'll hopefully see some error messages which could shed some light on why it doesn't run..

if you run rpm -qa | more
(from the command line ofcourse)
that will show you a list of all installed packages.
