You know what I never appreciated that.
Makes perfect sense now that you mention it, what I would presume its sort of the same thing when you try and install say a group of applications or services and it installs a whole load of crap with it, that consumes that much memory and messes up your system.
Albeit they probably depend upon those packages to work properly, it does get annoying at times.
I have probably actually seen this myself once before a while back when I was messing around with various things, so why on earth use Fedora then if it does this so much?
I bet I am asking the ultimate question there lol.
Thanks ever so much for that reply though, does make me laugh though, at the problems I have been having, sort of resolves it in my own head and gets a bit more information about distro's of Linux aswell, as most of what (infact all I have done) with Linux has been based upon Fedora and sort of made do with it if you like.
When I was at university, we practiced doing things with Fedora and thats what the tutorials we where given (merely exercises) where all based on fedora, but in my advanced final year was based upon for network management in the full RHEL cant remember which version it was.
Thats why I have stuck with fedora but will look at some reviews to see which ones best for me, which one would you say is the best to use then?
All I like to do though is just fiddle around see if I can get things working (typical nerd lol).
But I want to eventually say when someone asks at work if I can do something, I can ultimately turn around n say if the IT tech cant do this, I can, and get myself some more praise (possibly for what I am doing so to speak).
Sorry for the lengthly reply, but thats one ace reply!
One more messup with Fedora and I'm ditching it, lol.
Thanks so much,
