As a devotee of apt and a fan of minimal systems, I'd like to remove yum from my BLAG install. However, apt seems to think that doing so will hose my system, removing such things as bash and init (and yum says the same thing about removing apt). How can I remove yum and its dependencies without removing my entire base system?

You can rebuild the applications that are requiring yum to not require it. In BLAG, that will come with much pain. You pretty much want to leave yum there. Yes you do.

Out of curiousity, why should those applications require yum? It's a package manager, not a system library - core system stuff shouldn't depend on it, AFACT.
