Ah, so the RPM guys were simply slow on the update of automatic
download tools. I heard about yum, but thought it was some new
"exotic" package management system. As for apt-get, I thought that was
part of deb support. Either way, now I understand apt-get and yum
better - or rather how they fit into the whole structure. Thanks.
