The Great Package Management Experiment
Posted by Philipp Esselbach on: 10/02/2003 12:25 PM [ Print | 0 comment(s) ]
Saw over at OSNews that LWN.net has published an article on 5 different Linux package management tools
This heated feedback resulted in an attempt to conduct a practical experiment. It will examine the package management tools in five major binary Linux distributions (Debian, Mandrake, Red Hat, Slackware, SuSE) and provide examples of 1) installing a package not officially supplied by the distribution itself and 2) upgrading the entire distribution to a newer version. Without any further ado, let's get on with the show, in alphabetical order.
