Re: Can't upgrade to Rawhide



Hi

Yes, smart can also use yum repodata, just set up new channels of that type, point it to the same urls you'll find in /etc/yum.repos.d/*-devel.repo.

Smartpm can use yum metadata but its not just a frontend and its dependency resolves works very differently. Most notably it attempts to downgrade packages on occasions to resolve dependencies automatically which isnt what RPM is optimally designed or tested to do. Whether its desirable or if its a improvement is debatable. Yum obviously is getting better integrated with Anaconda, system-config-packages and so on. Of course now that Smartpm is under review for Fedora Extras repository, you have the choice easily.
