Install Packages using smart

Debian users have their favourite package manager apt-get and its graphical counter part synaptic download manager. RPM based system users have only limited options. Even though yum is good it is not as good as apt-get from my experience. I am using OpenSuse 10.2 and i found out a new package manager called smart. It is included in the suse 10.2 dvd.

Install smart and smart-gui packages

To run smart


To get its gui started use

$smart --gui

It supports parallel downloads. Resumes downloads. It stores the downloaded files in /var/lib/smart/packages
