Here's what's here:


What It Is

Rpm2tar is a utility for converting the files contained in a binary RPM package into a gzipped tar archive. Rpm2tar attempts to preserve file ownership, groups, and permissions as they are stored in the RPM package.

What It Needs

Rpm2tar requires rpm-devel-3.0.5 in order to build. Because rpm2tar links statically by default, it is not necessary for a particular version of rpm to be installed in order to run rpm2tar.

See the README for further requirements.

Where To Get It

The current version is 1.0.0, dated 2000-Nov-27.

Rpm2tar is available right here:

The following RPM packages are available as well [Red Hat Linux 6.2, glibc-2.1.3, rpm-3.0.5, statically linked]:
