With zypper (cli) and opensuse-updater (updater
applet) it is
within grasp to not have zmd+friends on KDE installations.
That would indeed be
I, too, would consider this a great idea.
Yes, this tools requires testing though, I encourage the readers of this
list to test them, I see them as the light and the end of the tunnel...
I'm never get the ZMD stuff to work
properly on my system (don't know if that's a zmd or zypp problem, however).
that's because it does not work properly, or if it does, it is too slow
But generally it's better to have a simple,
robust, but especially working
system for the package management. Nowadays it's seems there is a complex
interaction between zmd, rug, libzypp, yast2-package-management and now the
opensuse-updater (and all the dependancies - mono and stuff).
Yes, we need something that the vast mayority of **openSUSE**, an
**end-user** targeted distro needs.
And the interaction is less than perfect -
It is a hack.
why e.g. don't installation sources
I add with YAST appear in rug, but if I add them with rug they don't appear
in YAST? Is this amount of complexity really needed?
No, it is not needed, but somebody at novell thought it was needed. go
Just consider smart,
which - despite some other shortcomings - shows how simple package management
could be handled, without lots of complex programs and demons interacting.
Smart has it's own sets of problems, but yes, we need "something" like
smart ( but without it's problems of course ;) )
