Description Jerry Cloe 2000-09-17 20:45:22 EDT
When attempting to install up2date on a box that isn't running any gui 
installation fails due to dependencies.  Documentation suggests that 
up2date can be run completely as a command line tool (up2date -l and 
up2date -b).  The dependencies are all gui related.  The specific 
dependency failures I'm seeing are:

        pygnome is needed by up2date-1.13-1
        pygtk is needed by up2date-1.13-1
        rpm-python >= 3.0.4 is needed by up2date-1.13-1 (is this one gui 
        usermode >= 1.15 is needed by up2date-1.13-1

Can up2date be used in a non-gui environment?  If so, are these 
dependencies bogus in that situation?

fixed in errata being released shortly.  Yes, the new agent can be used in a
non-GUI environment.
