Question Cannot find apt-get for Suse?


I have heard that apt-get was ported to SuSe 9 as well as the widely used port for RedHat. Can someone post a link to the apt for Suse site please? I cannot seem to find the software anywhere. Is this an urban legend, or is there a real version of apt for Suse?

Thanks. I can't believe I forgot to search sourceforge specifically. doh!


Question #2 : Does anyone have experience using apt under SuSe 9? I tried Yast2 and frankly it sucks. Even know I can manually go to the sites it uses for patches and lists, YaST2 says it cannot retrieve lists.

Is there any downside to going with Apt here?

Apt is quite nice and works well when you can find sources. I personally like Yast2 and if you're talking about the update client I had problems when I chose a specific server but the one from Munich works great.

Wow thanks again. I will try that. Yast2 has a nice interface but couldn't retrieve the lists automatically.
