Announcing new RPM packages for Linux.
======================================

I have created a collection of RPM packages most of which could
previously only be obtained as a .tar.gz package.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PACKAGES
===========================

NEW PACKAGES
============

AUDIT: The 'audit' program recursively searches through
       directories looking for files that may not be needed or
       have strange permissions, ownership, etc...

CLOCKSPEED: Synchronizes and adjusts the system clock with a
            remote NTP time server.

DIALOG: Dialog is a program that will let you to present a
        variety of questions or display messages in nice
        looking color non-graphical dialog boxes from a
        shell or perl script. Various dialog boxes can be
        presented such as yes/no, menu, input, message,
        checklist, radiolist, and more. This program is based
        on the no longer maintained cdialog, but contains bug
        fixes and more features.

FCRON: A replacement for vixie-cron and anacron
       with added functionality.

GSHIELD: GShield is a firewall script which should run
         "out of the box" for most folks with minimal fuss.

GSHIELDCONF: Gshieldconf is a graphical configuration
             editor for gShield.

MUTTZILLA: Muttzilla allows the use with Netscape Communicator
           or Navigator of mail and news programs other than
           those built into Communicator.

PREVIOUSLY ANNOUNCED PACKAGES

        for BlackBox.

CDRTOASTER: Graphical frontend for burning CD-ROMS.

EZNET: A simpler way to do PPP for internet dialup connections.

GPSTREE: Shows process tree in an X window and allows you
         to kill a process. Something like ktop or gtop,
         but you don't need KDE or GNOME.

GTKTETRIS: A tetris game that looks much better
           than cxhextris.

IFLED (+DUTCH VERSION): For monitoring a network interface
                        with the keyboard LED's.

JOHN THE RIPPER: Password checking /cracking utility.

NAPSTER: A GTK+ napster clone.

NCFTP DUTCH VERSION:  An improved FTP-client.

         shell scripting.

1. updating RPM packages with new nonRPM-packages

I need install on my redhat 7.0 the ns2 (network simulator
http://www.isi.edu/nsnam/ns/ns-build.html). I would like to install in
getting the pieces I need.
This software needs several packages (ex. tcl/tk 8.3.2, otcl).

I have some of this package in my redhat distr (ex. tcl/tk), but the version
shown by GnomeRPM is 8.2(?). Checking the /usr dierctorie I find tcl-8.3.

Questions:
1. the information shown by GnomeRPM is wrong?
2. how can I update the tcl/tk package without having an RPM distribution
(it's enough decompress, make, make install)?
3.about the other packeges (ex. otcl),  could you give me suggestion (ex. is
better decompress them in a tmp subfolder and then give the make command or
put them in the final directorie and give the make command)?

I excuse for the not so clear questions, but I don't have a long experience
in the linux world.

Thanks to all who want to help me

Sergio
