Very good but slow
(Sorry for my poor english, I am French :))
Thank you very much for this wonderful piece of software. It is very useful to me.
I work on a K6-200Mhz machine and when the catalog file grows over a few megabytes, gtktalog goes slower and slower... After only a dozen of CDROMs of Linux distributions (with thousands of RPMS, I agree), the program becomes too slow to be usable.
Looking at the source code, I remarked that:
- The (Gnome) GUI code is mixed with the core processing code. I don't think that it is the best design for such a program and the code is not easy to understand.
- There should be a way to save the catalog into a MySQL database to speed up the whole application. By doing this, the catalog can grow bigger and bigger without decreasing the overall performance.
Keep up the good work!
