I've read several hundred times that it's bad joojoo to mix livna with anything else (other than Fedora/F-extras). However, it seems that pretty much anything I want to install doesn't exist in Livna repositories but [generally] does in one of the others. I can easily compile my own and have done that quite a bit lately.
However, I didn't choose FC4 because I wanted a friendly compiling environment (I actually switched from Gentoo, so hopefully you understand that I really don't want to compile my life away). I've got a fair share of Livna packages on my system to meet a variety of dependencies. But now I'd like to switch to the ATrpms/DAG/FreshRPMS/whatever/else/there/is repo setup. I have the repo data in my directory, it's all set to go.
I am wondering what kind of oddities I am going to be facing? Anything relatively simple I can do to remove/replace all my livna RPM's with ones from the new repo's I'm looking at?
Any advice at all for this kind of switch?
And finally, if this is really as bad as it has been made out to be (apparently cat's will fly, all houses in a 4500 kilometer radius will be burned along with their occupants, and all milk will spoil forever and ever) how can I get/submit RPMS for FC4 on x86_64 to livna?
