I dunno what people say when they talk about RPM hell
When people talk about RPM dependency hell, I really have no idea what they’re talking about. Here’s a factual look into RPM that should set the record straight:
The strengths of RPM
* No indirections — 100% of the times, the manifest corresponds to the installed files. Have you seen dpkg detours/indirections (dunno their name in English)?
* Built-in integrity checking. rpm -V. Can’t get any easier than that.
* The dependency system is cleaner.
