Question about updating repositories and package managers
I'm using Kubuntu 7.04 using the Adept PM. When I update the package repositories, I'm not actually installing anything, right?
From what I've read, Adept or Synaptic package managers are just graphical front ends for apt and apt is an advanced front-end for dpkg. What then is dpkg?
Do I even need Adept? Could I remove it and just use a terminal based updater and installer? Thanks.
