comment What is the real difference between “apt-get” and “aptitude”? (How about “wajig”?)
Dependency resolver in aptitude is great thing, but I remember, back when I used to use testing; especially right after release, it used to get stuck in endless loop or offer "solutions" like remove half of the system. When that happens: give good old apt-get update a shot.

comment Is RPM able to control the files in home folder without confirmation?
Run rpm -qp --scripts some-strange.rpm to check scripts. (IMO scripts are the most important part as they certainly will run immediately on installation as opposed to actual files that may run depending on their location and your further actions.)

comment Reconstructing dmidecode binary dump from /sys/firmware/dmi/tables
@RuiFRibeiro I'm "harvesting" the data from a Beaker testing repo. The set is relatively diverse; there are various types of machines (even a laptop). I'd guess they were collected using some recent RHEL or Fedora version. ... did that answer your question?

comment Should I put application into /usr/local or /usr/local/share?
And by the way, I don't see how in /opt there would be lesser chance of things messing up your app than when it's spread to /usr etc. Messing up other apps is mush more about naming things properly and not having bugs in install scripts.
