What is Glitter?

Glitter is a text-mode interface to the RPM package management tool. It allows you to browse packages installed on your system, verify, query and uninstall those packages. It allows you to update packages with new versions and install new packages.



Basically just download and install (or compile install if you get the tarball or src.rpm). RPM installation goes something like this:

rpm -ivh glitter-1.1-1.i386.rpm


Woohoo! Everyone loves screenshots, even they are from a text mode tool :)


Here are some 'features', or things we'll want to add sooner than later:
