Is it just me or is there no GUI to make use of Yum available from the

comfortable with using the command line ?

Just wondering.

It is in the "applications" or "main" menu as Add/Remove Software. The
name of the package/program is pirut.

I just loaded that up. It seems to be what it has always has been, a
manager of the software available from the install media, ie. no real
connection to yum. Correct me if I am wrong.

you are wrong ...
it does not even supports media it uses yum for software installation.
you can also install packages that aren't on the install media like the
extras packages or any other repo you set up in yum.

Okay, you are most certainly right. I suppose I was misled by it's
browse feature which looks exactly like the package selectory in
Anaconda.

I must say though, the tool isn't very helpful at first look.

But thanks for clearing that up.

both pirut and pup seems not to update the gui when correctly.. sometimes it takes up to 2min to redraw everything, maybe because it waits for something else to finish (yum). This looks broken to me, it should have a thread for gui and one for the backend.
