I actually have all sort of problem with this software!!! I do not understand actually what it useful for!! First I have never seen it in work, second I always trying to use YUM for all purposes or YUMEX (graphic interface ) -works grate.
Maybe somebody can explain what is this software, how to make it work, and why Fedora developers set it as a default application for packages add/remove in Fedora!!! It did not work in Fedora 9, as well as in 10 !!!

some help will be appreciated!!!
