So I'm probably going to switch to Fedora. Now I have had serious troubles installing programs, both with yum and apt in Fedora C3 and LormaLinux 5.2, I want to be careful not to get anything messed up. I don't have any time left for troubleshooting, have to get productive.
So: yum is installed, apt not. I prefer apt, it has more tools, a GUI-interface to make searching easier and it is faster.
But yum actually works right now on a fresh FC3-install.
1) Is it one or the other? I mean, can I install apt4rpm and try iy out, then just use yum if apt doesn't work? Is it safe to use both (I'd say not)
2) What if I try some yum repos and they don't work well - could that destroy anything, leaving yum unusable?
3) What about the subject of using fedora/livna and
other like Dag's, some says it's ok some say don't do it?
