Description André Johansen 2002-10-21 04:42:28 EDT
The KDE package manager kpackage is not included in the kdeadmin RPM in the 
8.0 release.
Comment 1 Ngo Than 2002-10-21 11:51:59 EDT
kpackage is obsolete in 8.0. Please use redhat-config-packages

Well, this is a very bad idea. Wery much people needs kpackage, because it shows
dependencies, numbers of versions etc. Why is obsolete? It is not possible to
leave kpackage and redhat-config-packages at the same time?
Redhat-config-packages is slightly unusable at this moment :-(

A very sad decision indeed. 
The KDE package manager is far superior compared to the Red Hat package 
manager.  A few things the Red Hat program does not cover (even when paired 
with up2date): 
- installation of packages from other sources than CDs (e.g. internal FTP, 
site specific NFS locations) 
- updating from several sources (e.g. FTP mirrors for better speed) 
- full package listing 
- good control of what gets installed 
- removal of packages (RHPM states that it can do it, but I still haven't 
figured out how to even see the standard pacakges) 
In short, managing one machine is not very easy, especially if you have some 
non-vanilla packages.  Managing more than one machine is a nightmare.  I 
consider this a serious regression from earlier releases. 
Time to compile my own KDE, it seems.
