After yast/opensuse it was turn of urpm/mandriva
And guess what it sucks too....
It sucked so bad, and given my experience with suse i just gave up in about an hours time.
All the problems are almost identical to opensuse rant only much severe.
I coulnd't even install google gadgets package, i tried six times with multiple tries to update repo lists before that.
Every time it would just crib giving some nonsense failed message and ask me weather i want to continue with whatever is downloaded..... WTF???
Why is the ease and robustness of apt so hard to get?
