Steps to Reproduce:
1. log in as root
2. control-panel &
3. Click on button "Package Management"
Actual Results: root:/mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS# control-panel
/usr/bin/glint: line 23: 16451 Segmentation fault ./glint.py
( curse and type Ctrl-C yet again)
Expected Results: well, a nice gui to hold my hand while i try to figure
out why redhat didn't install the freetype.h files in usr/include after
running rpm -i freetype-2.0.1-4.i386.rpm would have been nice
i just upgraded to RedHat 7.1 Beta 2 days ago.
Errhh, maybe i'm using the wrong version, but even logging in as root doesn't
offer a 'Package Management' option in the control-panel.
Do you need some other tools (like gnorpm) installed for that to appear?
Otherwise i can't reproduce this problem and therefore not fix it... :)
Read ya, Phil
the errors outputs say that you have installed the old control-panel and glint
RPM package management tool from Redhat-5.x. Update the both packages from RHL
7.1 should fix this problem.
