Updating your system the Smart way

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 84.193.131.73] on November 08, 2007 02:30 PM
At this moment I have installed the new opensuse (v10.3).
Yast is still used as a means of installing programs and I find it to be very slow and it occasionally gives me dependency problems.
(they really should switch to apt-get/aptitude for rpm as default.......like Mandriva/PCLOS)
So....in this case Smart is definitely the better alternative ...
I don't know if it would be a better alternative for apt-get on deb based distros.
I'm pretty satisfied with apt-get and therefore haven't tried Smart on deb based distros.
