SLC4 changes(IT)

  • Update system goes from apt to yum on all architectures

      • Apt(-rpm) is dead (0..1 active developers, no distribution)
      • Yum is the future (Fedora, integrated with Red Hat tools)
      • GUI: yumex (still “improving”)
  • Kernel updates are now fully integrated, treated as any other update by default

      • too many “old” kernels otherwise
      • Can turn off / configure
  • Other changes as announced.

      • But nothing on the “physics” packages integration (yet?)
