(it's in the official gnome tarball, it was included in redhat 7, and it's

Description :
GNOME (GNU Network Object Model Environment) is a user-friendly set of
GUI applications and desktop tools to be used in conjunction with a
window manager for the X Window System. The gnome-utils package
includes a set of utilities for GNOME, including Gcalc, Gdialog,
Gdiskfree, and many others.
[...] etc

As you can see, gdialog isn't there, but the description says it should

Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2001-10-08 15:46:15 UTC
The description is incorrect; a number of gnome-utils programs were removed due
to not working very well, not being maintained, not being useful, etc.
Description should be fixed. If gdialog seems to be maintained/working these
days we could review it and consider putting it back.

Comment 2 W. Michael Petullo 2002-03-03 21:19:06 UTC
Gdialog works fine for me.  I have been using the version included in Ximian's
gnome-utils-1.4.0-ximian.10 RPM.  Gdialog is very useful when writing Naultilus
scripts.  For example, I wrote a search and replace script that, when installed
in ~/.gnome/nautilus-scripts, allows a user to select several files, right click
on them, and perform a search and replace on them.  I would like to see gdialog
it back in Red Hat' gnome-utils package -- it can really add some power and
user-friendliness to GNOME and Nautilus scripts.

Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2002-03-05 21:08:22 UTC
Should be in 1.4.0-8
