Main menu -> rpm find-> xtoolwait -> xtoolait-1.2-5
Window with progress bar appears after the download box, window disappears,
no messages,
but the RPM is not installed.

I had this same problem and discovered what is going on.  The directory 
structure on the FTP site has changed, but fully qualified paths in the 
full .RDF file do not reflect that change.

For example, I wanted to download the newest iputils.  The Web Find is trying 
to get it from ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/updates/7.0/i386/iputils....  
The file now exists at 

It would be nice to get this fixed quickly!!!

I was duly located, and foud a couple of typos in mirror= lines of rpm2html.conf
Fix is on webqa, and a generation run is under way.
