http://forums.fedoraforum.org – So on my perilous journey for the superior OS i installed fedora 12 KDE. The frontend(to yum) is default more than bugged, there is lots of underlying bugs, and I managed to recover from my first screw up on the dependency hell(something decided to remove xorg+kde, along with my apps). The real problem is at hand: *Yum is useless for searching up something *Yum refuses to install unsigned packages(what is the non-existing force parameter?) *Yum lacks a good qt fronted, well to be found in the repos at the least(fusion-rpm enabled) *Did I mention that most of the stuff on the system got obscure gtk and cairo dependencies(ex: kpackagekit) So without a working frontend, how do I clean up this mess? I am even having trouble to locate the "ignore deps" flag.................... (HowTos)
