Krpm2info is a small shell script that can be used to display detailed informations about a RPM package file or extract its content.
The current release is the adaptation to Dbus of a former Dcop relase by S. Demoncheaux.
This tool displays in a Konqueor HTML page informations about a RPM package file such as properties, content, changelog, requirements ...
It can also be used to extract the content of the file into a default directory (this is not installing a new package; just unpacking it to a given place).
Note that it can only process files, not installed packages; and only RPM packages.
The choice is made through a small initial dialog (Display details is the default).
A tarball file (.bz2) and a source rpm for Mandriva & Mageia are available.
Provided Makefile is used to install it (no build process is required). See README
Krpm2info requires kdialog, Dbus and konqueror.
- Display detailed informations about a RPM package file
- Extract file content without installing the package
