apt for novell linux (suse)????
I am looking for an updating tool for my linux distro, for eval, novell didnt get out any repositories for red carpet (red carpet is not that great anyway), i am getting to the point where keep finding dependencies just not worth the time anymore, yesterday my friend installed quake II on debian just by doing "apt-get install quake2", that really turn me off who often spent hours to look for new libs and repeat the rpm -ihv command.
I have used apt-get before on my novell and couldn't repositories for it, when I added a red hat rep after downloading a million header files, it broke my gnome completely, i had to reinstall the entire system, so ... yeah, definitely not to do that again.
So what are my best alternatives, suse does have "you" (yast online update) but I don't think that works well neither, besides apt-get and yum, my friend has recommended urpmi from mandrake, it's a pain to set it up but once it does, it's an amazing updating tool which I have seen it, however, I do not want to break my system again.
Any thoughts? I have post similar threads before however no one answered .... (sigh)
