Re: yum vs. up2date

Can anyone give me some guidance on the pros and cons of yum
vs up2date for keeping my system updated? The little red button
on the task bar appears to use up2date, but yum seems to be
referenced as the thing to use on the Fedora web pages. Is it
just a matter of personal taste, or is there an argument for
using one or the other?



I believe it is really a matter of personal preference. up2date can use apt, yum and directory archives to get updates. yum is strictly yum archives. apt is strictly apt archives. yum is more popular on this list; although I personally like the flexibility of up2date.

The best thing, stick with one and learn all the options. This includes all the configuration files and other uses.

Good Luck,
James Kosin
