Projects / nuu


NUU (Network Update Utility) is a GUI RPM package manager based on Yum that supports downloading, installation, and updating of packages from remote repositories, and removal of installed packages. It has the ability to examine both installed and available packages, and includes a repository configuration editor. It also supports package groups and suites of packages. Finally, it recognizes a simple authentication mechanism called buffet based on a server-side cgi-bin program.
