A few weeks ago I erased FC from my hard drive and began tinkering with a lot of different distros.
Among the ones I tried out are:
Yoper, Mepis, SuSE, Mandrake, Xandros, Alt Linux Junior, ARK and I've had Libranet 2.8.1 on another partition for quite some time.
Every install went pretty smoothly, appart from little quirks that I could fix pretty easily.
The one thing that the Debian-based distros had was that I broke them all, and all at the same stage ...
Code: Select all
install - everything OK apt-get update apt-get upgrade
In the past years I've used RH and FC with apt4rpm and my system NEVER became unusable!
As for the rpm-based distros I tried out I didn't like them too much but they didn't break, Xandros didn't break either but then again I wasn't able to get apt working
I plan to dig a little deeper since I really like the Debian philosophy and I really would like to be able to use a Debian-based distro as OS but if I keep breaking my system at nearly every apt-get upgrade I do .....
I'd be happy to hear your thought about this.
Is apt-get more powerful than apt4rpm?
