My first day with Fedora

Filed under
Linux

Yesterday I switched my home desktop from Ubuntu 13.10 to Fedora 19 to have work environment ready for my Red Hat tasks.

Installation was easy as Fedora installer does not ask too many questions. But also does not give any software choice so I took KDE one. Made a backup of Ubuntu rootfs and /home partition and 10 minutes later I was running same X11 session but with Fedora logo in a corner.

Installing extra packages is argh… There is yum and basically nothing else. I tried Apper and Yumex — none of them was useful. Apper was unable to remove Konversation and message I got was useless (“some package depend on it” like). Yum did not have any objections. Yumex was even worse as it gave me a list of all packages without any grouping applied. Even “dselect” was better in 1999 when I started with Debian.

So I installed APT.
