Video: LCA 2017 - Package Managers All the Way Down

Submitted by Scott Dowdle on Tue, 02/07/2017 - 14:28

Anyone who has been using Linux for a while is familiar with package managers and package management.  Being a Fedora user, I have noticed a few projects that Fedora has in the works to augment package management.  For example, Fedora Atomic does not the traditional package manager (dnf) but uses rpm-ostree instead.  Why would Fedora be working on additional packaging systems?  What is wrong with existing package managers?  I have been asking myself those questions for some time now.

Kristoffer Grönlund provides answers to those questions in a talk entitled, "Package Manages all the way down".  Enjoy.
