Re: Fedora without RPM?

Just so you know, though, unless you use something like yum or portage or apt-get you will always be dealing with dependency problems. I would also add that regardless of distribution any given program will have pretty much the same dependencies.

One mistake that many people do is that they compare rpm with apt, coming down on rpm for not automatically managing dependencies like apt while never even mentioning yum. They then conclude that Fedora sucks becuase it has such an archaic package management system that cannot even automatically download and install dependencies.

For some reason, many people are completely unaware of yum, while heavily criticizing Fedora for its use of rpm and the allegedly accompanying "dependency hell".
