Question on package installer in Mandriva 2007

Recommended Posts

The last I heard is the panel applet is broken and not being sold as a service anymore.

 

My first post in this thread suggested the old rpmdrake is installable but I don't see anyone trying that.

I can see and install updates fine by some reason anyway...

That wasn't completely true, only some updates are visible in the new rpmdrake...

Won't know till you try! :antlers:

 

I would say rpm/urpmi are pretty reliable and, as long as you don't use --force or --nodeps, it won't allow you to break the system. Personally, I haven't heard anything about old-rpmdrake breaking anything but I haven't heard much about anyone using it. Whether using it meets your needs, you are the only one who can tell.
