APT vs Smart

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 89.8.56.11] on November 08, 2007 07:59 PM
What makes me curious is that I'm having difficulties with APT and broken packages in Ubuntu and haven't found a solution to the problem. Packages from the main Gutsy repo appears ok, but som recommended upgrades, Java, Screensaver and a few other packages keeps breaking and will not uninstall.

So if there is a chance that Smart handles dependencies better and more secure I certainly will try it. If it doesn't it will only cause another reinstall. I've had tons of them already.

Bring it on!
