Hmm... I'm using apt-get and I've had the same troubles with the .at-packages
smartpm did solve it - to a certain extent - but right now I'm downgrading from .at-packages to packages more easy-going on my system.
It may be the spoon which is the problem, but if all spoons are broken,the soup may be too strongly flavoured :P (sorry for that one)



Can you provide an example of troubles in apt land? The only one known
to me is yum itself.


Oh yeah.... I just tried to update 'smart' using apt-get ... This is but a very very very very very short glimpse of what happened .. *LOL*

file /etc/apt/apt.conf from install of atrpms-package-config-91-1.rhfc3.at conflicts with file from package apt-0.5.15cnc6-4.1.fc3.rf

file /etc/apt/preferences from install of atrpms-package-config-91-1.rhfc3.at conflicts with file from package apt-0.5.15cnc6-4.1.fc3.rf

file /etc/apt/rpmpriorities from install of atrpms-package-config-91-1.rhfc3.at conflicts with file from package apt-0.5.15cnc6-4.1.fc3.rf

file /etc/apt/vendors.list from install of atrpms-package-config-91-1.rhfc3.at conflicts with file from package apt-0.5.15cnc6-4.1.fc3.rf

REMEMBER: This is just the first few problems when using apt-get and .at-packages... I didn't want to use to much of your bandwidth listing everysingle issue... but you do get picture, right? There are many conflicts but these were the first conflicts with apt-get ... there were many more with many other packages...

In smart this can be solved... but yum and apt-get do not like .at-packages as I've just proved (at least not on my machine).

All theses errors came up when trying to update smart using apt-get. Now, that's what I call a "too strongly flavoured soup" - unless the intention is to break all spoons :P
