I am running Red Hat 7.2 as a server without X and want to install
gnome so that I can display an X screen on a Windows 2000 box using
vnc and ssh tunneling. When using Debian, I can use apt to select a
package and have the dependent dpkgs installed for me as well. What
is the easiest way for me to install a grouping of rpms over the
Internet via ftp? I want to select a block of the most common gnome
apps and just let it install unattended while I eat lunch.
I have another comment related to mail programs that run within
emacs. I used to use mew http://www.mew.org and remember that it was
pretty good. However, I can't seem to get it configured properly. I
don't particularly like rmail. From what I remember, rmail stored the
mail in a single file. Right now, I'm using pine with emacs as the
alternate editor. However, it would be easier to read the mail in an
emacs buffer if there was a easy-to-use emacs mail reader package that store
and search through a few gigs of mail.
