GUI based application for Installing RPMs for Red Hat Linux 9?


Is there any GUI based tool (software) for Installing RPMs on Red Hat 9, on KDE or Gnome, rather than using rpm command itself.

redhat

hi,

please use the "redhat-config-packages". it is the GUI based tool rather than the command line tool of rpm.

u will find "redhat-config-packages" in /usr/bin.

regards

rpm

hi,

sorry for the earlier mail..

the "redhat-config-packages" GUI tool is used to add/remove programs contained in the Redhat CDs. it cannot be used to add any other rpm files..

sorry again.. in the earlier versions of redhat there used to be a glint.. but i am not sure of any other GUI tool..

for me, atleast, rpm is the best... and i like to have command line interfaces rather than the GUI tools..

aaditya

Yah, you are right "majalee", I need tool like glint for Red Hat Linux 9. redhat-config-packages is of no use when it comes to installing RPMs apart from Red Hat CDs itself.
