For months I had seen a very interesting and useful document. Months. Linux users tend to get used to distribution and its package management system , which have their strengths and weaknesses but ultimately end up making us feel comfortable with each of them. The difficult thing is to switch to another distribution, or simply want to test it, and we met a manager that we have no idea how to use.
Obviously most current distributions corresponding applications provide graphical interfaces to help users, but often from a management console or terminal is usually faster and more efficient in many cases. The problem, as I said, is that each distribution things change .
Pacman that is where Rosetta, an official document of the Arch Linux wiki (and you could have warned, archers!) in which we find a table of all shares and options of Pacman , the package manager of Arch Linux, and which also appear in the “simultaneous translation” of these commands for other distributions.
in the table are specific to Arch Linux as a base and then the equivalence package managers Red Hat / Fedora (yum) for Debian / Ubuntu (APT), for old SUSE Linux (rug), for current openSUSE (zypper) and Gentoo (emerge). Of course the table is valid for distributions derived from each of these, as would happen with CentOS, which also uses yum, or Linux Mint, Ubuntu derivative and thus is true to the package management system APT.
I shed tears
I shed tears, because this is probably the best help in this matter I have ever experienced-indeed, sermonpe in the comments points to help Distrowatch similar, do not miss it either. Too bad did not discover it before, but as they say, better late than never, right?
