This was the first graphical version of the program. As you can see from the picture, I managed to get menus and an about box. I just followed the directions off the gnome tutorial. It's very interesting because session management is included and so is audio and tear off menus.

Nothing can be done from here. You can page your way through the entry of EVERY SINGLE FILE in the RPM database, but it isn't in an organized list at all.

On my Pentium II-450 with 128 Megs of RAM, this window appears in around 4 seconds. Most of that time is spent loading the file names into the list box. There are more than 62 thousand files listed right now.

Basically, this program is just running 'rpm -qal' in a graphical way.
