NUU

GUI RPM package manager based on Yum


NUU, Network Update Utility, is a graphical user interface which allows a user to make modifications to the installed rpm packages on a system.

Capabilities:

  • Install new packages or update existing packages by downloading them from a yum repository
  • Remove existing packages.
  • Configure set of repositories from which to obtain new and updated packages.
  • Examine installed packages or packages available for installation or update
  • Install, update, or remove groups of packages
  • Install or update suites of packages

Downloading

NUU can be downloaded as a binary or source rpm for the following linux distributions:

Those locations contain all the packages necessary to build nuu (beyond those provided by the distribution). If you only wish to install the binary package, then only the following packages are necessary:

  • nuu
  • additionally on RHEL 3/4:
    • qt4
    • qt4-x11
  • additionally on RHEL 3/4:
    • yum

NOTE: Some of the rpm packages in the above locations are produced by third parties and are provided here only for convenience.

NUU also can be downloaded as a source tarball.

In the past, NUU was released for various Fedora and SUSE releases, but this no longer is done. The tool almost certainly still works on those releases, however, and NUU could be built for them from the source tarball.


For automatic updates of NUU itself, you can create a configuration file named /etc/yum.repos.d/nuu.repo with the appropriate following content:
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6:
    [nuu]
    name=NUU
    baseurl=http://redhawk.ccur.com/nuu/rhel6/$basearch/
    
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5:
    [nuu]
    name=NUU

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4:
    [nuu]
    name=NUU
