apt-get for RedHat


I am using apt-get for the first time on RedHat 9.0 and 7.3 boxes. Two questions:
1.) After I do a "apt-get update" to update the packages available, where can I see a list of the packages that I can install?
2.) If I see in the list a newer version of Apache ( as an example ) that would overwrite an older version that I want to keep, how would I prevent it from updating the older version if I do a " apt-get upgrade" ?

Thanks

Hi unclebyron!

For the first question, if you install synaptic, you should be able to see a list of all packages available, graphically:

apt-get install synaptic

Regards!

You are unlikely to get updates for Redhat 9 and below now, since they are discontinued products and Redhat does not provide upgrade for them anymore.
