YUM is an rpm package manager with very easy syntax. It is preferred especially for beginners to install packages using yum as this is very easy. Your Linux distro should already have yum by default, but if this is not so, let’s install it. BTW, you can find yum manual here.

You can check if your system has yum by entering

  • yum –help

  • rpm -Uvh http://linux.duke.edu/projects/yum/download/2.0/yum-2.0.8-1.noarch.rpm
  • yum upgrade yum\*
