Installing a package in Fedora using yum is good. It is faster than pirut or pup in GUI. I discovered yumex a while ago. Installing it was trivial :
yum -y install yumex
It is a GUI-front-end for yum but faster than pirut or pup. The Ouput View gives you "what's going on'. I just love it. Try it!.
To make installation packages faster with yum, I highly recommend you to install the following yum plugins :
- yum-fastestmirror (yum install yum-fastestmirror)
