what is difference between rug, zypper and YOU (Yast Online Update) in Suse linux

Hi All,

I am new to suse linux.

I know the following tolls "rug, zypper and YOU (Yast Online Update)" are used to update the packages / pathces in suse linux.

Rug --> Command line

zypper --> command line

YOU --> GUI.

I have some questions:

1)Is zypper backend to YOU?

2)Is zypper and rug available in suse 9.x and below?

3)What is the tool used before suse 9.x for updating the patches?

Hi,

As I remember regarding SuSE, here is the info.

1) Zypper is not backend for Yast.
Libzypp is a software management engine and open source project which powers YaST and Zypper.

2) Zypper is not available in suse 9.x and below.

3) RUG was used in suse 9.x and below

If you need exact info, you may need to post a query in SuSE forums.

I started with suse 10.x and prefer the zypper command line option - much faster.
