Bug #242368 makes Fedora... uh... worse than Mandriva?

Filed under
Linux

"Closed Errata", but living bug. After all, package management is the worst managed department in Linux, no matter what distro you consider. CLOSED? Really?! Then how come the duplicate bug #251842: Dependency not installed was filed on 2007-08-12?

I thought only Mandriva is able to repeatedly break RPMdrake!

Things with F7 are actually worse: when Mandriva's RPMdrake is broken, URMPI is fully functional, but the bug in Pirut is only in part its own bug, and in part a yum bug, not properly handled by Pirut and Yumex. The whole thing seems to be horribly messy with the "new" yum.

Say, 2 months since #242368 was reported, and Fedora's package management system can still experience it? Gosh. Reliable stuff...

The reliability and dependability of the package management is crucial. Not anymore in Fedora.

Pro tip: Find tons of open-source Android software with F-Droid

If you're looking for truly open-source software for the Android platform, you don't have to do a ton of searching or check through licenses from within the Google Play Store.

You won't, however, find F-Droid in the Google Play Store. Instead, you have to download the .apk file and install it manually. Once it's installed, the rest is just a matter of searching for an app and tapping to install. Read more
