    SuSE and an equivalent yum tool

    I would like to know if there is a tool for SuSE (or if a familiar Red Hat tool works) for doing yum or apt-rpm.

    I would prefer a yum clone, now that I have gotten used to it. But if apt4rpm works okay, I would like to know.

    Thanks.

    Apparently Red Carpet works well. http://episteme.arstechnica.com/eve/...;m=51300801855
    There is something there where he says it works just as well in Suse 9 as it does in Fedora

    I have used both apt and yum in SUSE.

    Yeah, whatever.

    SuSE works very well for me- better than any other *nix I have used.

    I may try the actual box set, but the ftp install went horrible. X refused to work correctly and the nvidia drivers had trouble taking. Over reboots, any repairs done (alot) needed to be redone. I NEVER had this much of an issue with any distro, let alone SuSE. I have to rephrase my above post to say, SuSE itself probably isnt the problem, but the install itself went about as well as getting raped by Mike Tyson in prison. I survived.

    Any insight onto why the X11 issue was there, and reviving across reboots -- please let me know. The major issue was the modelines not being correct. Having a screen that moves and wiggles in a blurry fashion kinda puts a hamper on things.
