    I was comparing yum vs. apt, and if yum does extra things that help then great, but from my experience I've had package breakage happen more often on systems using yum so I'm not sure what as a user yum gives me over apt. The breakage could just be due to poor repo maintenance in Fedora but it doesn't help increase my belief in Yum/RPM.
    You do realise that YUM is just one program out of many, right? How about at least trying zypper and urpmi before jumping to such conclusions?

Linux has a horrible reputation for terrible and confusing software installation for any out-of-repo program for a reason.
    Uh huh. How to install any out-of-repo program on openSUSE: 1) Go to http://software.opensuse.org 2) Search for your program 3) Press "Show unsupported packages" 4) Click on "1 Click Install" 5) Confirm the installation.

    Yeap. Totally terrible and confusing

      No, I suspected something like this because ... because BSD nuts have ignored opensource GPU drivers development for a long time, so there is situation where new opensource GPU drivers are only supporting KMS and DRM subsystems (because their devs like those interfaces). Yet, BSDs are unable to provide those interfaces (FBSD guys are "working on this" but as usually "too little and too late", as it's hallmark of BSDs). So no recent opensource drivers in BSDs. But HD4000 card is old enough to try to run somehow even with ancient UMS-era-based drivers. Though they can be bugged and your idea about crash could be correct.

      But there was also at least one Linux missing in Apache benchmark since there are 5 results and only 2 BSDs, so simple math gives us that one Linux distro is missing. And failure to serve files with Apache would be a serious EPIC FAIL for Linux distro as well, don't you think so? So I'm really curious about this result as well. If someone is EPIC FAIL guys, they deserve proper mention at least. In fact silent lack of some result makes results interpretation hard enough.

        Wow. Are you from RH? I think you forgot the "problem" I was talking about, which is that apt is faster than yum in my experience. To find out you'd have to compare them side-by-side with roughly the same packages.

        Fuckin shills.

        What in the hell does that have to do with me saying I've had bad problems with packages breaking on Fedora?

        Trolololo much?

        Again, wow. What does any of that have to do with universal package management for Linux that is out-of-repo? I never said anything about packages for SUSE, I don't give a shit about SUSE. I give a shit about the Linux ecosystem as a whole and how it's horribly stupid, non-standardized, and fragmented when it comes to a lack of packaging standards that allow you to easily install programs and their dependencies from anywhere. A-n-y-w-h-e-r-e. Not from a distro's stupid walled garden software store, from anywhere. The only solution right now is to ship static binaries or include the linked libraries with the download. The only way to get launcher icons on a user's desktop is to include an installer program.

          FreeBSD 9.1 (release in late 2012) has KMS for Intel GPUs. I can run it very nicely on my Ivy Bridge laptop. Work to provide KMS on AMD GPUs is in-progress and going well. The next release of OpenBSD will have KMS for Intel GPUs.

          The BSD developers have not ignored open source GPU drivers, there has been nobody to work on them. The manpower available to BSD is tiny compared to Linux, so things often take longer. It's not a great situation, but it has been getting steadily better.

            No, I am one of Fedora contributor using yum on daily basis. When pointing out why apt seems to load faster than yum due to skipped steps and its configuration, you blind yourself iwth your bias toward the former. It is that elitism complex you display that slows down the development of FOSS.

            Fuckin shills.
            You are what you accused me with your ad hominen attack.

              It has to do with you saying things about RPM packages in general, while you actually mean only YUM.

              The http://software.opensuse.org site is not for some "walled garden" as you'd like to believe. It includes packages from the whole Open Build Service, which, surprise surprise, supports a variety of distributions. Here's an example. Other distributions don't support the 1-Click Install method, but you can download the RPMs just fine, or add the repository. The OBS also includes DEB support. Unlike the installers, which always end up being just a new competing standard, OBS allows to create native packages for each distribution.

                Claiming that something worked for you when it really didn't so not going to make your shitty BSD look better.

                OpenBSD's "KMS" project would most likely fail because of the limitations of their shitty kernel design.

As what BADCODE said, they haven't even realised that they are not the only ones who are producing OSes (except of course MacOSX because they use it not BSD).

                And try to show some level of maturity and limit the swearing, this is a SFW forum and it doesn't reflect highly on you or your intelligence.
