Alternative for rpmfind.net?


Hi, b4 I get the nice "STFW message" let me tell you I've searched

Is there any alternative to rpmfind.net? Because as I speak the main site is down (mirrors are working but I can't search for packages).

Thanks

and just a little tip if you are a GUI kinda person, once you get apt you can type at the command line:
apt-get install synaptic
and then it will install the software and when it is done you can type synaptic at the prompt and the interface will be right there in front of you with a huge list of packages and you can click whatever one you want and hit the install button and then proceed
