    PPC distro that deals with RPMs


    I've tried Ubuntu and it doesn'r run right, and I'm having trouble installing Debian, but those facts aside I just wanted to ask a simple question...

    I can never get RPMs to work and I was wondering if there was an program and/or distro that simplifies the use of RPMs, I've tried using apt-get, but sadly it doesn't have some pof the stuff I'm looking for.

    (FYI I am a noob and if you post any distro reccomendations, if you could poissibly rate the difficulty of the installation proccess that would be great.)

    Even though your post doesn't mention it your topic title does so I am assuming you want something for the PowerPC architechture.

    I would recomend Yellow Dog

    With YUM for managing your RPM instalation and removal

    I believe that Fedora will have PPC support in Fedora Core 4. As for installation, it couldn't be any easier as it uses the excellent Anaconda installer.
