I still use yum myself and simply allow packagekit to hang around. http://www.packagekit.org/pk-intro.html It doesn't interfere with anything that I've found.

Edit: BTW, Rahul's info here: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/RahulSundaram/PackageKit allows you to change it's routine to suit yourself.

What I don't like about package-kit currently is that I have gone into it's
kde4 panel menu and set all it's settings to "never" do anything but
it still insists on locking the yum lock. Apparently it things that even though
it's set to do nothing it should still take a peek at the repositories. But this
means it occasionally interferes with yum and yumex.

It's four packages according to Yumex..... Today, I finally flipped with PackageKit.... It's too obtrusive. I turned it off in Gnome 'Sessions' ages ago but it still popped up, when I looked again it was checked to start! The new Add/Remove Software is NOT going to win any prizes for 'User Friendliness' The whole thing was such a pain to use that I've been using 'yum' in a Terminal anyway. PackageKit is now history here... yum and Yumex are enough.

To me, PackageKit is just a big misunderstanding. It is slow and has limited functionality (why can't you group install software, e.g. gnome-desktop, and instead you have to click on every single package? Yum allows you to group install!).

Also, you never know what actually is being installed (dependencies) and how long the download will take... Well, including it in fedora 9 was a horrible mistake. Good to have yumex, which is by far the best package manager for fedora.

Well, I see the intent behind package-kit, there's a lot of people out there that just won't update,
until you have the system go out of it's way, look for updates then then bug them.
packake-kit is kind of like yum-updated but with more feedback.

Not updating causes big problems with security holes that never get fixed. So package-kit
just makes it stick out more. One thing I do think is nice with it is it shows the
reason for the update on each package. Yumex has the same feature but
usually it just has the canned description, ie it says what the package is
but not why it's being updated. It is a critical security fix or just a mundane
feature updated? The fields that would do this in yumex (changelog and other)
are usually empty.
