SuSE, openSUSE This blog-entry is a short tutorial how to set up Fedora Core's yum on a SUSE Linux 10.0 system, which is officially supported from 10.0 on. The article shows a short comparison of yum and yast as well as the problems yum still has because some servers still do not have yum support.

"yum neither is a SUSE tool (as far as I know)."

Indeed, but whilst urpmi is seen very much as a Mandriva tool (and even Mandriva might drop it eventually in favor of Smart), Yum by now is seen as distro agnostic.

Personally I prefer Apt.

I do prefer apt, but my second choice is urpmi.
In fact, my order of preferences :
1) apt
2) urpmi
3) smart
4) yum
5) yast
Why ? Because my first need is to have a quick package manager. Take a look at apt-cache and its speed, it's brillant !
