synaptic for apt

Has anyone played with this yet.. a GUI for apt. Some are using it on RH.


The following is taken, in part, from an email on the RH list.


apt-get install synaptic

synaptic is a gui for installing and removing programs.

if you then run synaptic as root you can choose mplayer and totem and
lots of other lovely stuff.

If you are running Red Hat 8, you may have noticed that samba browsing
of the network is broken in konqueror and nautilus.

There are new kde packages that work very well available for download.

If you put the following line in your /etc/apt/sources.list file and
then run apt-get update ; synaptic  you will see a load of updates

rpm ftp://orca.st.usm.edu/ pub/apt/redhat/8.0/en/i386  os updates
