What is the difference between UP2DATE and YUM?


What is the major difference between up2date and yum ?
I am using CentOS-4.3, I find Yum is much more easier to use when compared to up2date!

I found "Yum" is similar to "apt-get" in Debian. Am i right ? And
"rpm" command is similar to "dpkg" in Debian ??

Both suck, but Yum uses less CPU.
RPM(RedHat, Fedora, SUSE, ...) is indeed almost the same as DEP(Debian, ...).
IMHO, you're better of using either APT4RPM or SMART.

up2date is very similar to yum with a slightly different syntax. up2date uses yum repositories if you have a choice run yum. Running both can cause problems. yum is faster than up2date. Also, up2date is no longer shipping with Fedora Core 5 and presumably will not ship with future versions of Redhat. Yes, yum is very similar to apt-get and dpkg does the same job as rpm.
