I know for that, but SmartPM just hanged when I was tryed to upgrade the
system into Rawhide. Here's my channel:

# Name: Development

name = Development
baseurl = http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/development/i386/core/
type = rpm-md

I didn't know for that, thanks.

I read that Yum is the new dependency resolver for Anaconda, and
system-config-packages as well. I like Yum better because it provides
some features I've never seen on Apt or Smart (package repackaging and
installing packages locally - 'yum localinstall'). But it is slower than
Apt and Smart, for now :-/

Well, I'm not some SmartPM fan or something, I was just playing with it.
Seems nice tool. Or it isn't as it looks like?
