URPMI-Like Programs


Hi,

I have been running Mandrake (now Mandriva) for a while. I love the URPMI feature, but I want to try some other distros. Are there similar programs like URPMI in other distros. If so, could you please list/explain them? Thanks.

Ryan

Apt-get in Debian
Emerge in Gentoo
pacman in Arch
slapt-get in Slackware

There are those for Suse or Fedora whose names I don't remember but some people will tell you.
Seems Apt-get is the most reliable. It is certainly the most famous, judging by all Debian-like distros.
In Apt-get, you have to install your sources as in MCC, but there is no gui to do it as in Mandrivak.
Just have to edit your /etc/apt/sources.list
