Maybe I'm just a little dumb this evening, but I just don't grasp the aim of this article, nor do I see the relation between the title and the content...
Well maybe I see.
As far as I know, if you use the Mandrake/Mandriva distribution, you already have "urpmi", wether you just installed afresh, or did an upgrade. Nowadays or soon, it may be "smart" instead, but it's the same.
But if you don't use Mandrake/Mandriva, and you want to install urpmi (on Fedora for example), then I can understand the title (I suppose you would loose urpmi by upgrading Fedora... or not?), and the content...
... to an extent. Indeed, I acknowledge urpmi to be a wonderfull tool (I really like it), but isn't "yum" for Fedora equivalent?
