    i will ask some stupid question here but what the heck?!

    does anybody here know how to decompile the *.rpm file
    i mean to torn apart to binary file so that i could modify it.
    i want to modify some gnome applications in order to run
    the applications. my glibs is not supported by the older
    versions, but if i downgrade my glibs much of my applications
    would not run.
    is there a possibility!~

    thanks people!

    Hrmm... I've never heard of decompiling an rpm but if you ask Mr. Google he might be able to tell you. What I can suggest is look for the same RPM as the one you downloaded but with the letters "src". That indicates source code and that you can rip apart to your heart's content.

    Hope that helps.

    Thumbs up

    Why couldn't you install the package and then make the modifications?
    I came in to the world with nothing. I still have most of it.
