Works well for me. I added
among the list of autoupgraded directories and it woks fine ...
I'm using the CVS version though, the 1.5 is getting old I need to make
a new release.
The bad think is that since Helix doesn't sign its packages (will
this "feature" be reserved to paying customers ?) you can't have a
proof that the pacckage wasn't hacked. If you disagree with this,
stick with your distribution packages which are signed for most of
them (or change your distribution !).

Eeeek don't do this. Rpmfind looks at the dependancies before
launching rpm, and *will never force* an install. Forcing an install
means that you will get serious shit sooner or later.
Okay I will release rpmfind-1.6 today, so more people can play
