I have been building C++ server applications for Linux, typically in a CentOS environment within a virtual machine. A while ago, when setting up my development environment in CentOS, I became accustomed to using Yum (with YumEx) to manage installed libraries on the CentOS system.
I am now building the application on a Debian system.
Is Yum (and YumEx) intended for use with Debian/Ubuntu, as well as CentOS? If not, what analogous package manager should I use with Debian/Ubuntu?
