Description Frank Perreault 2003-01-23 15:42:06 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003 Description of problem: RH decided in Version 8.0 to remove KPackage from the KDE install because they created their own packaging tool. While this new tool is fine for the user who you want to hide system complexities from, for those of us who need to see the details of the packages we are installing, this new tool is unsatisfactory. Until such time that the RH RPM tool is capable of displaying the kind of detailed information that some of us need, the KPackage utility should be included in the distribution. It should also be made available for immediate download for those of us needing KPackage's functionality now but can't wait for RH tool to be tweaked. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Install Redhat 8.0 2. 3. Additional info:

This was done intentionally; redhat-config-packages is what we're supporting in the future.
Comment 2 Frank Perreault 2003-02-20 05:26:29 UTC
As I mentioned in my second paragraph, until such a time when Redhat's new tool is capable of supplying all the functionality that we are had with KPackage, the KPackage tool should be included in the distribution. To be blunt, the current Redhat package tool in the 8.0 release is a poor excuse for a package manager. No detailed information about the packages you are installing and no way to use the tool to install RPM's that aren't part of the 8.0 release. We shoould be moving forward, not backward.

Created attachment 108153 [details] Patch to build kpackage To help things along - here's a patch to the current kdeadmin spec file to build kpackage.

if you want to have kpackage again, please rebuild it. sorry, redhat-config-package is what we are supporting in the future.
