The Secret to Deps


Hello every one.

I wanted to ask you if there was actually a secret to deps. I get frustrated when one package needs something else, and that something else needs something else. lol

If there a package manager for suse that will dl and solve deps?

That would be great.

Thanks

Yea I know, but when I want to install pkg's outside of yast, I get stuck in dep hell. Also yast doesnt upgrade the programs, it just updates.
