how often do you ask that question again?
I ask it because sometimes people are doing things that are a fat-finger
away from being really bad when it isn't necessary. If there are better
and safer ways to do things, I usually ask why they aren't using them.
Sometimes there's a good reason, other times there isn't. As for the
frequency in which I ask it, usually not that often anymore, but it used to
come up more often.
a empty "/var/cache/yum|dnf" is a by definition and
Perhaps so, but how is DNF supposed to know it's empty? When it hits and
has a file not found? I know that when I do a "dnf clean all", it removes
the solv cache and the metadata cache and writes a file into /var/cache/dnf
that indicates that the data has expired, which prompts DNF to pull
everything on the next run.
why should i trust a software obviously not working with the basic
commands right in case of other ones?
Maybe because it isn't obvious. Frankly, "rm -rf /var/cache/dnf/*"
bad idea most of the time. Sledgehammers aren't needed here. :)
and BTW we are not a Ubuntu - what's up with all that
"sudo" stuff - if i
am root then i am root, that's it
Erm, we've had the option in Fedora to set up sudo at install time for
quite a while now. I've used it all the time because I rarely need to be
superuser beyond an action or two. Sure, I could just switch to root, but I
don't need to unless I'm doing a lot of actions that require superuser
privileges in quick succession. You can replace it with "su -c" or you can
just use it as a marker to indicate you need to be root for it.
