kapt-get is a graphical frontend to apt-get, specifically for RPM-based systems.
Version: 0.3.4kapt-get is a graphical frontend to apt-get, specifically for RPM-based systems. kapt-get is not a direct drop-in replacement for the apt-get command, but it provides a good way to add a GUI to an otherwise command-line operation (in scripts, etc).
Operating System: Linux
So, rather than typing "apt-get install foobar" for instance, you would type "kapt-get --install foobar." Another "key feature" is the ability to update the repository database as well as perform another operation in the same command. For instance, "kapt-get --update --dist-upgrade" will first run 'apt-get update' and then 'apt-get dist-upgrade' and give a GUI to the whole operation.
PerlQt 3.009b2 or higher is required to run this program. I highly doubt that it will run with an older version. apt-rpm is also required. It will not work with apt for dpkg, but I'd be willing to accept patches. The whole app will be rewritten for 0.4.0 which may make it easier to add support for it.
To install, type "make" and then "make install" as root. There is no "configure" script, so there is no need to run ./configure.
TRANSLATORS NEEDED! If you'd be willing to translate kapt-get into your native language, I would be forever grateful. Contact me if interested.
