There was a question bubbling in my mind....since I have tried SUSE 10....after dropping Fedora..!
can we INTEGRATE >> YAST2 with Fedora Core 4
If yes please tell me how...I love to have a control center for Fedora...coz it's a CRAP without anything...I came to know about half the apps in SUSE 10....like
I mean the whole list is out there...! I tried to install banshee wasting my whole day... just to find out that some stupid pango library is missing...damn man.. that's bad..!
I mean isn't there a way in which I can install something...without a dependency buzz..!
I love linux for all the reason except for that....the installers are too weak...! they aren't powerfull enough to download and install the respected binaries/libraries or whatever it may be..!
Here's a case study...done by me...I took into considerations few things....
So people can I get some easy way out..! integrating YAST2 or Mandriva Control Center on to FC4...can you suggest me something....about installing / configuring and just....enjoying...the whole concept of linux..GUI...!
I love FC4 for ::
>> It's performance....StartUP time... simplicity..!
>> and the ability to mount CD-ROMS/USB devices.... OUTSTANDING
I hate FC4 for ::
>> It's bad installer, less packages....
>> no NTFS support pre-built.
>> no compatible drivers for sound ...[I can't live without sound] I am not able to control the volume....no matter whatever I do..!
I love SUSE 10 for ::
>> More packages....more drivers...
>> sound works gr8, banshee and amarok already ....it's gr8 to hear sound...
>> and NTFS pre-built. YAST 2....it's awesome...!
I hate SUSE 10 for ::
>> I had a problem configuring my N/w it was greek...lang. for me in YAST2,
>> no detection and mounting of CD-ROMS and USB's, incompatible drivers.
whatever I do I had to go and access through /media/cdrom......or...... /media/usbdisk.
>> LOW performance than Fedora Core...4, it is loaded with steroids. :D
In Fedora, try as root:
Yum is the package manager for Fedora.
yum install <app name>
Check out the Fedora FAQ: http://www.fedorafaq.org/
Fedora does in fact have weaker than average configuration programs but for some, configuration programs aren't needed (like me for example).
Try yumex. It´s a GUI for yum.
I did not use it because it took ages to get a new repository list with yumex. I prefer using the commandline.
So it seems everyone is using Fedora here....gr8...
BUT can someone help me in SUSE 10...? I mean about the auto detection and auto-mount features for CD/DVD's and USB Devices..!
I was also talking about how can I have the vim features of FC4 in SUSE 10... I mean the syntax highlighting is not there...!
so... ;) I will be waiting for your response guys..!
