Re: [opensuse] Basic learning tutorials query
Linux Tyro said the following on 11/02/2011 06:23 AM:

Oh well, it means basically there are two types of linux - 1) rpm 2)
deb and I am going for 1) rpm. NOW in this rpm man distros come like
openSUSE, fedora, etc.. and in deb other distros come like ubuntu,
debian, etc.. , is it like this?

I'd word it the other way round.

Redhat, mandriva, suse, mint .. use RPM packaging

Debian, ubuntu .. use deb packaging.

The two pillars of `political correctness' are,
a) willful ignorance, and
b) a steadfast refusal to face the truth
