Wow - Daddy likes Apt-get for RPM's
So we have a red hat box or two at work for logging and generating reports (cause windows can't handle it), anyway, I like Debian, always have. Lately I have been soley using FreeBSD. Well, I was asked to build a Red Hat box to run an application that does forensics analysis and correlation of vairous logs. We built it as RH 7.2 and I wanted update a few packages plus add some Perl hooks to MySQL. Well that began the dependancy chase.
Never using apt for rpm's I was skeptical. Well since it would take no time to rebuild the box if it didn't work, I installed apt for rpm's. I have one word, damn. Made a believer outta me.....
