FYI, regarding the installation of autorpm on SuSe, there is an interesting
article in,
under the section AutoRPM.

The author mentions that you should manually change the added line
in rc.config from START_AUTORPM_CRON="yes" to "no", since
it is a beta package at the moment.

He also states that the "perl_net" dependency is not crucial, so it can
be safely ignored, using the --nodeps option of rpm.

Finally he mentions that if you remove the package with the "rpm -e"
option, rc.config is not updated, thus the previously mentioned line
will exist after de-installation.
