    When I try to start it with

    smart --gui

    I'm getting

    error: Invalid interface 'gtk'

    What's that? Shell mode works fine.

    ok, thinking then posting installing the gui rpm should fix that

    Thumbs up

    This thing is good. My FC3 is still running (let's see what happens after rebooting ). I think this proggi is very useful. Needed some minutes to figure out how to exclude packages, because I compile the kernel myself, so I don't need these rpms.

    Have fun folks

    Installed it, works like a charm. Highly recommended!

    yep, I like it too, it's a lot faster than yum IMO. But I don't know about those default 13 repos tho. I removed some to reflect more the yum config file found on fedorafaq. I also wouldn't trust it yet for a full system upgrade. But it is very flexible, and the UI is very clean, I like that. I'll try to only use smart from now on and see how it goes.

    I not too sure how to deal with priority yet. The way I see it, the official updates should have the highest priority, followed by fedora.us, then livna and then all the others. Dag's not compatible with livna I think, but what about freshRPM?

    Anyway, everyone should use it. Fedorafaq should write a paper on this one.

    I'm the opposite, I enable freshrpms and dag and disable livna/fedora.us

    I'm no fedora guru, does it work well? I did it that way because I often see people saying fedora.us/livna have better package, more testing etc... could be wrong tho.

    Question

    SmartRPM ran fine for serveral weeks now. But now, if I want to upgrade all, I get an error:

    SDL_gfx-2.0.12-3.1.fc3.rf.i386.rpm: public key not available

    Im aware or two possibilitiers: Getting the appropriate key or disable gpg checking. But I'm neither sure which key I need and where I can find it, nor do I know where to disabale gpg checking.

    Can anybody help?

    Thanks,

    mighty

    SmartRPM

    So, is this a better option than the YUM Extender that I've been reading about?
