gnorpm is no longer in versions 8 and 9; there won't be a bugfix update to it for 7.2 at this point.
Comment 2 stev knowles 2003-04-08 19:53:11 UTC
so, what is replacing it?
Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2003-04-08 20:06:02 UTC
up2date, redhat-config-packages gnorpm was not maintained and was very buggy/nonworking. The other tools are less featureful for now but will grow over time.
