Work with Mercurial in GUI mode (Fedora 14)

Recently I had to work with Mercurial repositories which involved some of my project work and while I'm at it just went on to see how to use it with the help of a GUI tool if any. Then I found out that Tortoise has a GUI support for this which is named TortoiseHG. (Note that one can always use hg which is part of the  standard Mercurial installation which works fine with the command line for the same).

So, how to use TortoiseHG?


For the fedora it's available in the Fedora's update repository. You can easily install it using yum. 
     Note: You need to have Mercurial installed before proceed. If you don't then it'll be installed as a dependency. So no        
                 worries :)

yum list tortoisehg <Check whether its available>
<Login as root>
yum install tortoisehg <Install>

Usage: You use hgtk to work with GUI mode.

Example: Simple repository init with it look like this:

You can use most of other commands similar to this. Go figure... :)
