In any single version of Centos there is only one YUM. Having multiple
and incompatible versions of Yum in the same software release is
bonkers. Forget Dandies and be simply pragmatic. Everyone knows Yum but
DNF (something to do with DNS ?) or Dandies or another load of weird
ideas from Fedora people desperate to emulate M$ ?

DNF = Dandified yum ?  and not a single 'Y' in the name.

Nein danke.
Nee takk.
Alstublieft niet voor mij,

Staying with excellent C6 until the end.
