I haven't seen this thread yet, so I figured I might just create it.
There has been some discussion recently about those new package managers (can they be called package managers? they sure look like package managers to me).
- How are they different from traditional package managers such as apt, pacman, etc.?
- What are the advantages and drawbacks?
- From what I understand, I can use, say, apt along with snap without trouble? If I want to install some specific application, which one should I choose by default?
Thanks for your answers :)submitted by /u/cryptochoucroute
I'm trying to get to the bottom of this and I don't understand what's happening. The current epel 7 version is -> http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/7/x86_64/e/epel-release-7-7.noarch.rpm. This was, a couple of weeks ago 7-6. But that release just fucking disappeared from the repos. :O I mean, what the hell? Why are they removing previous versions? Or am I looking in the wrong directory for it?
I can't update epel every frigging 3-4 weeks or so in our infrastructure.
I could use this one -> http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-7.noarch.rpm and than just stick to always latest. At least this way I don't have to always update. But the point was sort of pegging to a constant version and not always use latest without some testing first after an update.
Isn't there a nicer way of doing this?

Ive been using Debian 8 for the past year and a half on my server and laptop and its been great. I fancied a change though. I like to standardize my machines i.e using the same distro on my laptop and server so im giving openSUSE a shot on both. It seems good so far (yast as always is glorious) but I wonder what others experiences of leap are. Ive used 13.1 and 13.2 in the past briefly but there was always issues getting nomachine to work. I managed it in leap though.
Would you guys use openSUSE leap for a home server? What have your experiences been with openSUSE in general with regards to stability and updates breaking things?submitted by /u/maxp779
VR is pretty good at distracting us from the outside world - take off the headset you've been wearing and you'll see that it's gone dark/everyone has left/you really need to shower.
Frog and Stanford are putting this to good use with VR Care, a low cost, open source virtual reality headset and Epione, the accompanying game concept. Both are designed for a very specific purpose - distracting burns patients from pain during ongoing treatments, over weeks/months, in hospitals.
