I have a very small server room. It has very good network, but lots of
not very powerful computers. Many of them are ARM based.
As I hear about ARM users taking 8 hours to update 1 package (I've had
it take 12 hours to fail to update a package) I irritates me.
The fact that Fedora practically forces people to use delta rpm's has
rattled my cage for quite a while. I eventually opened a bugzilla with
what I consider a reasonable compromise.
in /etc/yum.conf, at a minimum. A comment about it would be better.
It would be even better if you put
for the arm builds.
Why bring it up here?
1 - As you can see, my bugzilla hasn't even been acknowledged.
2 - I'm wondering about dnf (Duke Nukem Forever)
-- What is it's stance on delta rpms?
--- Does it do them?
--- Does it force you to do them like yum does?
--- Is there an easy to find option to turn them off/on?
