Re: Debian vs Red Hat??? I need info.


I have used dpkg, and been forced to use rpm, and rpm is just as good, more
or less.

The problem is that there is nothing equivalent to dselect or apt in RedHat.
I rarely call dpkg directly, unless libc6 is stuck again ;-), but the
nearest that RedHat has to a mid-level tool is GnoRPM, which wants gnome,
which wants X, which is moving in the wrong direction for my firewall/mail

Can we please not be so negative about rpm? I'll agree that dpkg is
better (and of course I'm completely not biased here :), but rpm
is not a piece of crap.
