ComputingScienceColloquium Date: February 19 Time: 11:00 Room: Unnik 201 ----+++ Speaker: Armijn Hemel ----+++ Title: Having 'Fun' with RPM ----+++ Abstract RPM (short for RPM Package Manager) is a popular tool on Linux and other UNIX operating systems to manage software installations on machines. Despite its popularity and widespread use it has its drawbacks. In this talk I will try to show why and where RPM fails and try give solutions within the RPM system, if any are possible. Most of the results were acquired during research related to the ST-lab buildfarm.
