Greetings,

FYI, regarding the installation of autorpm on SuSe, there is an interesting
article in http://securityportal.com/topnews/weekly/linux20000807.html,
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.
