    • Release Notes Summary:
      Photon OS uses TDNF (a DNF variant) for its package manager. This bug fix adds Puppet package provider support for Photon OS.

      Description

      PhotonOS is a RPM derivative OS from VMware. However it does not use yum, nor the newer DNF. It uses a DNF compatible application called TDNF (https://github.com/vmware/tdnf). Some details from http://www.vcritical.com/2015/06/quickly-update-to-docker-1-6-on-photon-by-using-tdnf/

      TDNF is a VMware innovation that offers DNF-compatible package management without a massive Python footprint.
