The Future of rpm package management: dnf
DNF is the next generation of package management for redhat based operating systems. Currently, it exists as a fork of yum 3.4 that use libsolv as its dependency solver. It is currently in use by the Fedora distribution.
CentOS8: dnf manpage dnf.man.txt
Perceived deficiencies of yum (which DNF is intended to address) include poor performance, high memory usage, and the slowness of its iterative dependency resolution. DNF uses libsolv, an external dependency resolver.
DNF performs package management tasks on top of RPM, and supporting libraries.
DNF was originally written in Python, but as of 2016 efforts are under way to port it to C and move most functionality from Python code into the new libdnf library. libdnf is already used by PackageKit, a Linux distribution-agnostic package system abstraction library, even though the library does not have most of DNF’s features.
ok Fedora. please make a new logo for DNF.
it kinda suckx X-D
