I'm new to this list as well as BLAG, the Fedora-based distribution that
primarily uses apt-rpm, so hello everyone. I'm wondering, what do
people know about the use of Adept with apt-rpm. I see a recent post
(http://web.mornfall.net/blog/adept_2.2_on_fedora.html) indicating it
has been compiled for read-only use, which would already be useful to me
(I use KDE, find Synaptic annoying, and mostly use apt-get on the
command-line for actual installations or removals).
At some point when I'm bored and have nothing to do, I was going to work with
Adept and add support for rpm/yum to it. I can't say much about rpm/apt,
because I'm not really familiar with how apt works.
There is already apt-rpm, which allows you to install, remove, and
upgrade rpm packages using apt-get. That's why I don't think it should
be That Hard TM to get Adept to do the same.
