Well, you could use apt-get itself -- it's available for Fedora. However,
the "standard" program is called "yum", and it's basically equivalent. The
main thing that'll take some getting used to coming from apt-get is that
there's no separate "update" step to get new repository information -- you
just do "yum install somepackage" and it automatically checks the network.

The yum man page has a lot more....


yes...apt-get does "update": "apt-get update" will update the repo information and pull down any new listings it finds on the mirrors. Who told you apt-get doesn't update?
