I've re-installed 70k from a cd and ran `yum -y update` soon after. Out of curiosity I decided to try `apt-get update && apt-get -y dist-upgrade` whilst yum was yumming. Tail end of results shown below. Not for the faint hearted. Apt one in the end.

question - should a system be "allowed" to run two package management systems simultaneously? Surely apt and yum are both pointing to the same rpms on this box and they could step on each others toes, right?

been thinking of posting something along these lines myself, since installing blag a week or so ago.

i was simply going to ask why is there 2 managers anyway, and wouldn't that almost guarantee a conflict somewhere down the road?

In the past I've found yum useful in installing software on a broken system, when the admin wouldn't let me use apt to fix the broken packages. That all I've used yum for when I've had apt available. I would imagine Including yum is useful for people coming over from fedora, although it's a pain sometimes to convince previous fedora users to use apt instead.

Also, doesn't pirut now need yum?

I don't see what they would ever interfere with each other since both of them interface through RPM and that is what manages which packages are installed. I could see potential problems if you accidentally did this:

yum update
apt-get dist-upgrade

But the threat of that doesn't seem to justify removing a potentially useful too.

They both can't access the rpm database at the same time for writing, so they wont step on each others toes that way. It wont break anything, but you can't run them at the same time. In other words, they both can't install at the same time.

They don't conflict. They both point at the same database in the end.

Yum is there pretty much because it /has/ to. Apt is there because many people (such as me) prefer it.
