Sadly, we don't have anything much good to launch... hopefully we will soon.

Comment 2 LENHOF 2002-03-03 07:02:29 UTC

Perhaps in the meantime you can use install_rpm from 

or make a script which do what you want

An appropriate tool is in the works.

Comment 5 Chris Runge 2002-08-12 00:40:26 UTC
still an issue in Limbo 2 (7.3.93)--could redhat-config-packages be associated
with RPM?

Comment 6 Havoc Pennington 2002-08-12 03:04:43 UTC
Not yet as r-c-p can't do anything with a single RPM package yet.

r-c-p has gained this functionality.
