Dude,

when was the last time you used YUM?

in FC5 yum is much faster than smart - maybe its cause smart refreshes its cache every time but seriously yum is much faster at least for me there is no comparison.

Sorry, that is not correct. Yum refreshes the cache everytime, not smart. Check this link http://mandrivausers.org/index.php?showtopic=32414&st=0
And you will see that smart needs ONE minute for a task for which yum needs FIVE minutes. ;)

Although smart is definitely faster, I still use yum. I feel a bit more comfy with it.

I didn't mean web cache i meant local cache and it takes 20 odd seconds to finish that for me with smart even when removing files or doing anything.

I am referring to:
Loading cache...
Updating cache... ######################################## [100%]



Yum runs atleast 10x faster for me :/

Yum takes a long time first time but afterwords it only downloads incremental headers and is much much faster here.
