Quite nice
Authored by: Glanz on Feb 03, '03 10:27:03AM

As a user of Synaptic for both RPMs on RPM-based Linux distros and for Debian for the .debs, I was pleasantly surprised to find an equivalent engine for Fink... Even if you prefer the command line method for Fink updates, this is handy for an overview of installations, and the icing on the cake is the package descriptions under the "tools" menu item that informs the user about each package as to installation particularities, warnings, dependencies, possible glitches and development status, as well as a handy URL to the project page of the application in question.
