Just want to say that I am aware of the problems with the current version of Purp. The major problem is that I haven't been able to keep up with the changes in librpm. I am working on a total rewrite of Purp since the existing code is old and messy. That work is about half done.

The problems with segfaults when listing things are fixed Part2!
This bug is fixed in version 0.9.2. At least it works fine for me now.

Re: The problems with segfaults when listing things are fixed!
Nope, still doesn't work on anything except installed packages. I notice that if you do a 'List' 'Scripts' that it works, as long as there aren't any scripts in the rpm. I tried it on an archive that I know has scripts (qt-2.00-1.i386.rpm) and it gives the exact error, the same as doing 'List' 'Files' or 'Dependencies':

read failed: Bad file descriptor (9)

Purp: Oops! Caught a SIGSEGV.. Shutting down.. (fatal error)
Works fine for rpm's that are already installed, though.

Just want to tell that the problem described by 'naChoZ' is fixed. Listing files, dependencies and scripts works fine now (in version 0.9.1).

PURP
Don't bother with this version. You can't do List Dependencies, List Files, scripts, etc, etc on anything except packages that are already installed. Instant segfault.
