Redhat 9 PackageManager


Hiall!

I had Mdk9.1 and now changed to RH9 out of curiosity.
Well I'm pretty disappointed, however im gonna give it some time before i go to another distro (i am new to it, i must be wrong)

I am disappointed with the Package Manager for instance. Tell me : is there any way to search for packages on the CD's without having to mount all and checking them manually? Mdk's PM was really a hot stuff. Or can I download a better PM from somewhere?

Thanks all!

Arch

Try with redhat-config-packages.

Use rpm from line command to advanced features.

redhat-config-packages is exactly the manager i dont want to see or use

it's not only unable to search thru it's database but incapable of installing anything without an Error message

get apt for redhat

Works like a charm, solves the bigest complaint I've ever had with Linux - installing software. I am a newb too and have had no prob updating or installing ANYTHING since using apt. You'll find apt for redhat pakages on freshrpms.

Cheers.

yeah I agree. In my experience the redhat-config-packages tool stinks. I use apt for rpm as well. Its really superior.
