True, but I was agreeing with the statement that `"yum install" was not a straightforward inverse of "yum remove"', which is true.


The inverse of a "yum remove" may require specifying multiple packages for a "yum install". Consider packages a, b, and c, where b and c are dependent on a. "yum remove a" will remove all three packages, and "yum install b c" would be needed to get them all back again.

i agree with you paul. mmm, yum is still slow :(

If you really want to see how fast yum is, Download the packages you want, install them with rpm -Uvh, go find the dependencies, install with rpm -Uvh *, download more dependencies..... Boy, yum is great! :-)
