    Intalled


    Completed the installation, wow its almost like a dream at first, the install was relativly simple, nothing gentoo style, but its nice every now and then to not have to worry about all the details. So far im impressed, the repositories are a little sparse, namely they seem to be lacking apache, its an odd package to not have. reguardless, tomorrow i plan on devling a bit deeper into this intruging distro and i no doubt will post my results. But barring any seriously disturbing findings, i think i may have a new desktop, the serverside still seems to weak, but that remains to be seen, Ill see how 3rd party source does on it.

    You probably tried to look for 'apache' as a package name. The correct package name is 'httpd'.

    Code:
    apt-get install httpd

    Yes. Unfortunately it does not include package descriptions and it is a bit out-of-date.

    the packages are not really out of date. The descriptions need work

    HungSquirrl: Obviously the devel team is working very hard, do you need people to work on updating the descriptions in the database? My experiace with YOPER so far has been plesant enough that I would be willing to give back.

    The descriptions aren't stored in a database but rather in the RPMs themselves. As such to update the descriptions someone will have to release a new RPM of each package. As you can see this will take much effort.

    If you want to give back to Yoper you can get started by joining the forum at http://www.yoper.com/forum2/ . The simplest job for people to do is to be a packager like me and make RPMs. There are pretty decent instructions for doing so on the website.
