zif - Package management done faster

· Read in about 1 min · (85 Words)

On Fedora 16, I used zif. zif is an alternative to yum and its fast!

How to setup zif? So easy: sudo yum install zif zif-tools

All set!

Search for packages using zif:

sudo zif search mongodb

Do a offline serach ( like cached -C in yum ):

sudo zif search -o mongodb

Install packages using zif:

sudo zif install mongodb-server mysql-server

Update all packages:

sudo zif update

And if you feel like canceling the operation using Ctrl+C, it happens almost instantaneously!

I like it.
