Apt-Get

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on April 19, 2005 06:47 AM
You do realize that Linspire does come with a copy of Apt-Get right?? So, its hardly necessary to install something else.

But it is annoying to here than the CNR system has some confusions. Even more annoying that CNR and apt-get don't like each other, since installing the wrong thing can break the CNR's dependencies. They really need to fix that... They are however one of the few seriously trying to make stuff easy for non-techies to work with. I might even consider it for a new system of my own, if I decide to go the easy pre-built/pre-installed route, just to save some of the complications I would otherwise have to deal with.
