Re: Can't upgrade to Rawhide



Hi

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 :-/

Yum has constantly got improvements in speed over almost every release. Learn to use yum -C <operations> if you want it to run from cache on occasions. Also the version in the Fedora development tree has a timeout value set to 1800 seconds by default to avoid refreshing the cache on subsequent operations which makes a pretty major difference.
