Not to be contentious, but because I want to know if I'm missing anything : what is the benefit of running PackageKit, rather than "yum clean all" followed by "yum update" at *my* convenience daily?

Well, codec installing, mime type installing, font installing, plugin
and dictionary installing.... removing the whole infrastructure makes a
lot of the other bits stop working. It's perfectly okay to leave it
installed, and just not let it ever check for updates itself. It also
allows you to use yum and rpm directly without getting in the way.

Have a look at www.packagekit.org if you need to see use-cases and
screenshots. Thanks.


I can do all these with Yumex which interface I prefer. I tried packagekit when I installed F10 but still found yumex is better.

I removed it.

I may try it again when F11 comes out.
