Alright so my new linux box is comming on the weekend and i am downloading FC3 ISO's right now and backing up my FC2 documents. One thing is really bothering me though, and that is package management, i am really confused.
In FC2 i used APT, it worked well and never mistreated me
In FC3 it seems like apt has been almost abandoned and YUM is the main choice now, fair enough, i can adapt, i see Yum extender could possibly replace synaptic for me. Now comes the confusing part, repositories. I have been looking on your Fedora FAQ and have examined the yum.conf on there. I planned on using this conf but i hear about fedora.us not being compatable with alot of other places like dag, etc. It looks like these other places have more packages to offer me but there must be a reason you guys are recomending fedora.us in your FAQ, hence my confusion. I want to be able to install the unoffical packages like xmm-mp3, Xine, and aMule as well as my Nvida drivers.At the same time i want to keep my system up to date with the latest updates. (Something i didnt do as well as i should have in core 2)
Could someone please provide some insight on this situation? Right now on APT i am using fedora.us packages and freshrpm's on core 2, now i guess these two arnt supposed to play well togeather but i never had a problem, i guess im more of a newb at this then i thought!
