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.

>> Yum runs atleast 10x faster for me
lucky
yum is not working for me at all
Also 2 FC5 gui installation managers doesn't work
because they are waiting yum (AFAIK) for meaningful response and after some waiting (several minutes) just showing me error message "unable to get software list" or smth like that. So i can't add/remove software through the standard tools. Wtf!
I don't have internet connection in linux.
I connecting to internet via vpn. I have tried to install pptp / pptp-client step-by-step but failed to get it to work. Connection is succesfully establishing but dissaperaring after 1 sec.
A lot of people using vpn, why disto maintiners doesn't include it by default?
