I just use mc (midnight commander)- ncurses version. It appears as
a virtual file system. You get to see all those hidden, special
files, just like any other file on the system. I don't know if you
can delete a file in an rpm with it, I have never tried. You can
even use it to manually install the package if you want, or need
to. Best of all, it works without X.
