Repository Program?

Repository Program?
December 30, 2009 08:22PM
I'm a long-time Ubuntu user who likes to try other distros... Debianish distros, that is. I just installed Elive and am looking forward to seeing how much satisfaction it brings.

I'll donate if I use this for a while, but this time I went with the free x.54 version.

Kudos for the LiveCD recognizing my nVidia motherboard chipset and giving me a nice screen for the install.

Gparted hung while scanning devices, so I set up the partition in Ubuntu. I first selected ext4 for the fs, but Elive said I had to have a separate /boot partition (not needed in Ubuntu), so I changed my mind and went with ext3.

I saw the blog post about repositories, but I don't see a program to do what Synaptic does for me in Ubuntu. Is there one?

OK, I found the thread that tells how to get Synaptic. I just assumed there would be a repository program installed by default. Maybe there is in the stable version.

I think it's only a bug or mistake, synaptic is the default package manager for Elive... Was here and should come back quickly...:D
