Re: Specifying How Yum Downloads Updates

I'm comparing two messengers:

One, with 'minimum code', which relies on the user to decide whether the
dependency list to be removed contains elements which are actively used
by other packages.

A second, (debian's package manager), which maintains a reference count
so it does not remove elements which are still in use by other packages.

Which would you like to unleash on the world?


So when yum prints:
 "Removing for dependencies:"


and then lists out all the pkgs that will be removed as a result of the command you just typed in, you don't read it? You don't check that list?

So debian's package manager will most certainly remove a pkg and all pkgs which depend on it and all pkgs which depend on it.

I think what you've experienced is a difference in the dependencies themselves, not a difference in the depsolvers.
