yum and apt


Hi,

I was just wondering if when you use both apt and yum, there are dependency troubles? For example, if I install a library using apt, and then I want to install a program using yum that requires the library, will yum know it is there, or will there be a dependency error?

Also, does APT update that little red updates circle, or just yum?

yum, apt, and up2date essentially do the same thing. The difference is the repositories that you have them check. They all work with rpm which is what determines the dependencies. That's the point of these programs; they easily resolve dependencies.

Hope this helps.

No, there won't be dependency problems. Your system will know what rpms have been installed, whether you've installed them manually, through yum, or through apt.
Also, apt won't do anything to the up2date taskbar icon. In fact, if you add repositories to yum, without adding them to up2date, those repositories won't have any effect on up2date either.
