yum and packagekit - list installed packages and dependencies
In Fedora 11, does yum keep track of packages added by the Add/Remove Software tool (is this PackageKit?) and vice versa? What about applications not in the yum repository that I install myself — do I have to keep track of those?
If I uninstall a package which had dependencies installed specifically for it, are the dependencies removed as well?
PackageKit is a front end.. in fedora it uses Yum as the backend..
I do not have an answer on manually installed packages.
Yes, yes, I think so, and no.
The Add/Remove Software tool is a Gnome app that manages yum and apt repositories. So it and yum will mirror each other.
As for those that you install yourself, I am 90% sure RPMs you install yourself don't show up in the tool or yum, as I can't find them in there. So, yes, you do have to keep track of them.
Also, if you uninstall a package that had dependencies specifically for it, you have to track those other packages down and uninstall them manually.
Hope I helped.
