Kpackage4 is the port to KDE4 / Qt4 of a former project by Toivo Pedaste.
This GUI can be used to install (upgrade included) or remove RPM, Debian, Slackware ... packages or to get detailed informations about installed packages such as dependencies, content of a given package, change log or scripts used during installation or removal.
Through `Settings' menu, path to local (RPM) or remote (Debian) repositories can be setup for installing new packages.
A `Management' mode is also available to examine a package file (source or binary).
A handbook is created during build process
Build requires CMake, KDE4 and Qt4.
Code is hosted by a Git repository; a tarball file (.xz) and a source rpm for Mandriva and Mageia distributions are also available
See README for configure, build and install operations.
TODO : Kpackage4 was fully tested with RPM package handler. Help will be welcome for test using other handlers (Debian, Slackware ...)
- List installed packages and display detailed informations on a selected pkg.
- Install a new (or upgraded) package or remove an installed one
- In `Management' mode display informations on a package file (src. or binary)
