Re: Did i just made the fastest dependency checker in the world? (198 packages in 1.5 seconds)



forgive me if i sound hard but:
do you really need proof to see that the dependency checking is a highly time consuming thing.
i just did a yum update.
i had a 100% cpu usage for a few minutes during the dep checking. that`s _TOO_ much for just a update. (oke.. this is a update of 148 packages but still)

it just seems overkill for me.. specially now that i know that it can all be done in well under a second in a logic way :P

Stepping back again, is dep solving the part that slows down yum? Has anyone profiled yum and identified which part(s) are slowest.

IME, every developer agrees with that, and no developer wants to write
it.  Even worse, when they do write it, the assumptions are often
wrong about what is clear/already known and what isn't.  So it's often
better when someone else does the documentation.  Which almost never
happens.  Add to that the fact that writing good documentation is a
skill by itself.

So, well, UTSL like everybody else :-)
