The call for papers is almost over. If you want to speak, please send in
your abstracts soon.
I started writing up some code to add RPM
support to Nautilus. At the moment, I just have a simple GNOME
VFS module that allows you
to see what packages are on the system. You can see a sample of what
it looks like here. The package sizes represent
the installed size of the package (as reported in the RPM database),
and the modification times are the installation times of the packages.
I still need to write some code so that you can view information about
the package (probably as a nautilus view), and some utilities for
installing and removing packages (these will probably be separate
applications, which should cut down on the problems I ran into when
writing GnoRPM. When it is
finished, it should be pretty useful.
