Early OpenMandriva Lx 4 Alpha builds featured a very nice Packagekit integration in Plasma. When an uodate was available, I could just click the update applet, review the list of packages and hit the Update button. No password prompt, no hassle, it worked beautifully!
The more recent OMV 4 Beta builds have changed it. Now we have the Dnfdragora applet loaded by default. When an update arrives, it is handled by Dnfdragora instead of Packagekit.
I wonder if it was decided to do so intentionally and if so - why?
Dnfdragora takes more time to update the list of packages and is generally slower. Why not revert to Packagekit?
We had nothing but problems with PackageKit/Discover - it seems to essentially break at random. We didn’t have the time to figure out what exactly is going on, so we opted for an alternative that works reliably.
Thanks for the explanation, Bero!
