Well, of course you don't even need the "purp" utility
for installing RPMs, it's sufficient to slightely modify
the install test menu entry from:

> RPM:Test install of current RPM file:Any:Any:Any:Any:Any:rpm -i -vv --test $F; pause

to something like:

RPM:Install current RPM *as_root*:Any:Any:Any:Any:Any:su -c 'rpm -i -hv $F'

On the other hand, "Purp" is a very handy RPM handling utility,
running in text-mode also, the best I've ever seen;
it lets you easily view files, scripts, dependencies, etc. of a RPM
file on mnemnonic one-letter commands, so very similar to XTree/UnixTree !

Best regards
