Description Ali-Reza Anghaie 2005-05-31 17:20:07 EDT
Description of problem:

For the first time I used system-config-packages post-install to add a few
packages. The interface didn't clearly reflect other packages that had been
installed via an up2date and even rolled-back packages that were already updated
by snagging them off the CD. It's not clear from the documentation how you can
do anything more useful other than point at directories where you've got all the
latest packages.

I'd like to suggest system-config-packages be able to work against a setup RHN
profile and pull package lists and packages from RHN.
