    GRAB Tool for Linux

    Hi Guys I've been play around with this tool, it's call "GRAB"
    "GRAB: Do you ever get tired of the RPM paper chase? You try to install X.rpm to be told that it needs Y.rpm. So you go to rpmfind.net and grab the latest version of Y.rpm, only to find that it requires Z.rpm. GRAB is designed to help with this, by building a list of RPMs on selected servers and downloading the required RPMs on demand."
    I found this cool..tool specially if you like compiling..it's help..(for me) hope this tool can help you too

    So check it out at http://rpm-grab.org/



    Ps: Did I posted this one in wrong "room"? ..If so sorry

    Sounds like a good idea.

    RPM dependencies always got on my nerves. After one time trying to update Gnome, I had a huge list of never ending dependencies. Eventually I ignored a few and totally messed up my system (running Redhat at the time), I got fed up with the whole RPM thing.

    I just switched to Slackware - and have stuck with Slack ever since.
