XIMIAN RED CARPET
Project is dead !!
The ¨Red Carpet¨ is an
install/update system for Ximian, works with a GUI and checks the
installed packages and the version of it on your system, and presents
you the updates, new packages, additional packages etc.
There is all
sorts of extra, a search function, an install history and an
installed/available software function. It checks the dependencies
automatically and if you´re up to date.
Makes the install and download a job you can do in your sleep.
It´s free and you don´t have to register . . .
For more info go to the Ximian Website
Download page: Here
Here you have to choose your distro from the
drop down list. ( Debian,
Mandrake,SuSE, RedHat and a few more . . . . . . but no Slackware
There are 3 packages you have to download.
( For Mandrake 9.1 it was: )
we will install those packages, open a console and ¨cd¨ to the
directory where you downloaded the files and install them in this order:
The first time you get two dialogs, choose:
this system ( not remote ! )
start deamon = yes
And you get the GUI of the Red Carpet
Next time only typing ¨red-carpet¨ will do the trick.
That´s all, have fun !!
