Install multiple versions of same library and "switch" between them

Hi,

on Mac with HomeBrew I can have several versions of the same library installed and switching between them is a matter of doing a "brew switch". On Fedora I am struggling to find an equivalent. For what I can see, I can only install a specific version of a package. Sure I can download the sources and install a separate "version" myself but I was wondering if there is a way to let dnf install two versions of a package and then switch between them as needed.

Thanks!

People are developing flatpak (Fedora) and snap (Ubuntu) for that purpose. Containers (docker) are similar for usage in servers.

Fedora Modularity addresses this very issue. It’s currently only available in Server edition, but there is a proposal to enable Modularity across all editions for Fedora 29.
