Question Solution like Yum for SuSE?


I was reading about a tool called Yum, which helped ease the problem of a dependency hell in red hat and fedora core. It somehow queried a database and installed many of the dependencies for you, making it a lot easier. Is there a solution similar to this in SuSE or are you stuck downloading each one individually from the internet?

Thanks.

You can use apt-get in SuSE. If you do a search here, you'll find the needed files and repositories.

Yes, I did mean here. You'll also find more details here. (The latter is offsite.)
