When I used Redhat, I remeber using apt-get. The tree wasn't as big as it is today, but still useable. Nowdays, if I wan't anything I just use slaptget and/or swaret to download and install stuff for me..
sounds interesting, i may get it..... i can use it on redhat 8.0 yes?
Opnosforatou that is a modified APT to work with RPM's the orginal APT is for Debain and uses .deb packages which is what ii thought you where talking about.
i have downloaded and install it, how do i run it, i would like to attach an icon to it on my desktop, whats the command for it?Quote:

However, Synaptic as Opnosforatou said is the frontend for apt. I haven't used it, but I'm shure its good.
yeh i done apt-get update, it was taking forever and lots of disk space so i cancelled it, i only got 5gb disk space, i'll run it again once i get linux onto a bigger hdd
i perfer to compile everything by hand so i dont use aptget or even the 2 that kriss mentioned since im in slackware. but if they were to get the source of applications and compile them and install them i would be using them :)
