Re: FC3 - Has the community given up on up2date?

I still use up2date and have not experienced any major problems until the recent bogging down of mirrors for FC3.


I'm running a version from development, before I cut off rawhide of up2date-4.3.52-3. I notice that there is now some feedback as to why up2date takes s long during dep resolution. It seems to be downloading headers from all of the repositories listed in the sources file.

Anyway, I have used yum, apt during trials and have felt comfortable with up2date with its multi-repo capabilities, different configuration warnings and its easy to use GUI interface. (Exclude repos, packages, etc from a list during installations.

Of course, having experienced slow download speeds when we were using RHN and the non-paying upgrade accounts might be a reminder feature from the RHL days and a way to hold onto the past. Maybe something related to RHN in up2date is causing the lag during the dep resolution phase.

I'm holding onto up2date for now. It is nice to have different options available for maintaining one's system.

One Note: If red-carpet gets to be included into the distribution or is reliable and functional within FC releases, I would use this over up2date, yum or apt as a program installer/removal tool.
