Why do the rpms need to be on cdrom? If you do an nfs install, the rpms will
be on an nfs dir. The tool should handle such a situation by allowing me to
specify a directory where the rpms are.
You can do this from the command-line (redhat-config-packages
--tree=/path/to/tree) but we probably won't get to having this specified in the
UI for this release
It would be nice if it could read this from a config file
(say /etc/sysconfig/redhat-config-packages) such that one
can set it up once and then just click on the icon. Thanks.
That's what the UI would basically be configuring -- probably not going to
happen for this release, though, due to time constraints
Why did you put the config file in /etc/redhat-config-packages.method?
Because I'm a nice person and then forgot about closing the bug? :)
The filename was mainly chosen so that when we add a real config file in a
future release (since I'm sure there will have to be one sooner or later), we
don't get a conflict on the filename and with getting rpm to replace it.
