this is where fedora needs to more seriously look at apt as something
default, and getting synaptic to behave more like apt on the command line.
i've changed the default behaviour on my gnome desktop to run 'apt-get
update && apt-get install %s' (not exactly, there's a wrapper script),
apt checks the rpm file and then downloads the requirements. synaptic
needs to do this, which i've tried and it doesn't work. i havn't been
able to find any real documentation on the command line flags for it. if
a pretty gui came up and grabbed all the dependencies for you, users would
be very happy. i feel taken care of when apt comes up in a terminal and
installs what i need.
that rocks. Does Yum support resolving local packages's dependencies
with remote repositories yet? Yum is so much more compact then apt-get,
and I really like that it uses rpm-lib instead of dumping all the rpms
into one giant and ass-ugly --nodeps system call.
Also, eventually system-config-packages will probably be better or as
good as synaptic.
