Apt-get really screwed up on F9



Anyone using apt, and apt-get on F9?

There were problems with synaptic on F9. I could remove packages, but not 
install packages. MD5 sum missmatch problem. I posted a bug report for this, 
and saw there was already another bug report for the same problem.

As of the last day or so, I did an apt-get update, and got the following.

I've had to do a yum update to update F9, which went ok, but what the hell has 
gone wrong with apt, and apt-get?

I have to say that I'm really annoyed with this, as I've been using apt since 
Fedora Core 1, with virtually no problems.

As a side issue rpmfusion has just come on the scene, and where I could you 
apt with livna, and freshrpm's, but rpmfusion has no support for users of 
apt, but only Yum.

I think it's about time to say goodbye to new versions of Fedora. I'm posting 
from FC2. No longer supported, but working like clockwork, apart froma small 
problem with my mouse from time to time.

Fedora users ignore this post please. This is a complaint to the Fedora 
developers, who are living in their own little world. I thought that Linux 
was about choices, but it appears that Fedora devs have decided that Yum is 
the way to go, and Apt can go down the can, and be no longer supported.

I couldn't care less what replies I get, as I'm seriously pissed off with 
Fedora 9 at the moment..

Nigel.
