Have you tried apt-get recently. What's your opinion.
I have tried it and it broke my system. No idea what I did wrong, but I
needed to reinstall. You won't see me trying that again.
As it is now replaced by smart (since 1.5 year now or so) I don't think
it is a good time to start again.
automatically checks for and retrieves any dependencies I think it is quite
efficient plus it has a clean interface....the command line.
I do not like that it updates stuff from external sites. And I sure did
not like that it ruined my system. The explanation on the website was an
utter mess and I also had some issues with signatures.
Everything was explained on the site, but it was just too much info
badly explained in a lousy layout.
I'll have to learn how to use rug. I see there are lots of options.
The second one is interesting. It explains why I don't have any issues
with zen. I don't use it. :-)
The disadvantage is that repo's added in one place won't be in another.
Also, just to let you know the reason I like apt-get so much is I don't have
to remember very much. If I know the name of a package I want I just
type 'apt-get install package-name'. That's it. You really couldn't make
it more simple than that !! Aptly named, wouldn't you say ??
On the command line I remember `yast -i package` and `rpm -e package`
It's people. Source code is made out of people! They're making our source out
of people. Next thing they'll be breeding us like cattle for code. You've
gotta tell them. You've gotta tell them!
