I have just released gnorpm-0.6, which is a GUI frontend to the RPM package management system. This version contains significant new features over 0.5. Here is a list of some of the changes:
If you had tried out one of the snapshots I put on my ftp site between 0.5 and 0.6, the main changes are to the rpmfind code. Now the search results are correct (I was chopping off the top of the results list during the sort), and download and install part works properly.
To compile this release, you will need gnome-libs, gnome-http and gnome-xml. If your ISP only allows you to access FTP sites through a proxy, you will need to apply a patch to gnome-http. It is available at ftp://ftp.daa.com.au/pub/james/gnome/libghttp.patch (I have sent this to Chris Blizzard, so it may be in a future release of gnome-http).
You can get a copy of gnorpm at ftp://ftp.daa.com.au/pub/james/gnome/gnorpm-0.6.tar.gz (sorry no RPMs yet). If you like pictures, a screenshot is available at http://www.daa.com.au/~james/gnome/gnorpm-0.6.gif
One last note -- if your ISP blocks HTTP access except through a
proxy, you may run into problems when you first run gnorpm. It may
be a good idea to create a file ~/.gnome/gnorpm that contains the
following lines: [rpmfind]
After that, you should be able to set other options from the preferences dialog.
If you find bugs, please tell me.
