So far, I just watch from to time for the blasted stuff
to reappear, knowing it will. When it does, I close Firefox, and
run the command again.
What harm am I doing that way?
Fwiw, I run gpk-update-viewer (or, rarely, yum update)
every day or two; I hardly ever touch rpm any more except for new
releases of Opera.
