rpm-get is a simple clone of apt-get for RPM. This little application will let you download, install, upgrade, or remove RPM packages/sources as well as upgrade the entire distribution with ease.

Release Notes: This release changes max2=$(bzcat rpm-list.db.bz2 | grep rpm | grep -v \/ | grep -c .) to max2=$(bzcat /var/lib/rpm-get/rpm-list.db.bz2 | grep rpm | grep -v \/ | grep -c .) in genrpmlist.
Release Notes: Compression for rpm-list.db, and a slightly better overview of how many packages there are/will be in the database.
Release Notes: A getlists function was added to allow a user to download the database lists from an FTP server. This option will allow rpm-get to perform much more quickly for any FTP sites that include these lists. A bug that disabled the upgrade function was fixed. The ability to only upgrade a single package was added.
Release Notes: Wrote the dependency function to check for versions of files or packages that are otherwise installed. Fixed the glibc dependency version checking - all dependency checkings should work now. Made dist-upgrade exclude devel packages as well.
Release Notes: S.u.S.E. support was removed. Mandrake/RedHat compatibility was improved. All instances of 'if [ "foo" = "bar" ]' were changed to 'if [ "foo" == "bar" ]'. mklists was renamed to genrpmlist. The default cache directory was properly set to /var/cache/rpm-get, and the default database directory was set to /var/lib/rpm-get. The auto-configure was removed from the spec file so that the RPM package won't start to generate the databases on install. A bug in generating the databases was fixed.
