    Phoronix: DNF Package Manager Is Now Available On Clear Linux

    While Clear Linux may be extremely performant as shown in our many benchmarks, its default repository serving "bundles" (their task-based approach to package management) can be a bit light if wanting to use this Intel open-source Linux distribution on the desktop. There has been yum available via a bundle while now next-gen Yum, DNF, is also now available on Clear Linux...

    Give it a go, we all like to see if Usain Bolt will be first or not

    As distro-hopping, he also wanna do sport-hopping, as could be seen here "in the name of the game"...

      I'm interested in your benchmarks, as always. I'm also definitely interested in using Clear Linux on the desktop.

        Your review will probably "Clear" for me (hoho) whether to put Arch or Clear in my new X1 carbon

          Will packages via DNF utilize existing libs on the system or try to install the DNF equivalent packages?

            "compare to the performance of the native Clear Linux bundles/packages, etc"

            That would be awesome!
            I'm very interested.
            I tried using Clear Linux, but the packages available (and the requirement to build those that aren't) bugged me.

            If there are some performance gains from using CL as base and the dnf /yum packages, maybe it's worth a little more effort.

            Could you run their php5 vs dnf php7?

              To be very clear; DNF on clear linux cannot be used to install packages onto a system;
              it's only for the internal mechanics of our own devops team....

                (fwiw clear linux ships php 7)

                  Is that an indication of how limited your current package management scheme is?

                    well no it is an indication that we're not an RPM package based distro.

                    bundles have a limitation currently, mostly that we're bound to a max of about 100 due to devops logistics; we're working hard to break that so we can go much more finegrained.
