View Full Version : Yum GUI for FC4

24-06-2005, 08:56 PM
For those people using FC4 there is an updated Yum Extender available. It is the GUI for Yum and is available here (http://linux.rasmil.dk/cms/modules/wfsection/article.php?articleid=1)
I have downloaded it and am trying it at the moment, looks good and has a wide range of repositories :cool:

Only available for FC4 at this stage

Looks nice :) Are there any Qt-based Frontends for it, as I know a few users who could do with something like that in kde.

I run it in KDE just fine.

My mate has a low-spec'd box and would rather not install a lot of Gnome-libs if possible....

Ahhh true. That occured to me after the post at 2 am :)

Would it slow the box down to have the libs or just use hard drive space?

Just use HDD space

Finally had the time to update to Core 4 this evening, and decided to check out Yumex. Previously used apt-get/synaptic for the package management. It isn't too bad, and is easy for people to use. I do prefer the extra details you can get about a package in Synaptic like all the dependencies the package requires.

Think I will try out Yumex for a bit longer and see if it grows on me :p
