Anyone here know anything about Conectiva 8? Or even any experience w/ Conectiva at all? I would appreciate any impressions you might have. I am sick and tired of rpm dependencies and I have no idea if I'm ready to try Debian since I don't want to risk losing my Windows partition at this time. Anyone in SoCal want to buy my copy of SUSE8.0 Personal?
With connectiva you have the same frontend for managing rpm's like in debian - synaptic.
The keyword here are frontend and rpm - you still have the same troubles with dependencies like anywhere else.
If you are in Brasil go for it - screw anything else; you can always download whatever you need.
If you are really sick and tired of rpm's go debian or compile yourself.
But you will have some fun either way.
