installing a sotware


Hi all;
I want to install a software in Linux Redhat 6.0. in its manual it is commented that "be sure that packages such as openmotif, libf2c and readline are installed." what are these packages? how and where can i provide them?
as i am a new user to Linux, please explain briefly how to install them.



Thanks in advance...

What program do you want to install?
Normally, with Linux eg RHEL, there are standard repositories of programs that are already pointed to by your system.
You then just use the GUI (System=>Administration=>Add/Remove Software), or use the cmd line (in both cases you'll need root access).
For the cmd line the the cmd is
Code:
yum install <name of package here>
which will automatically install any dependencies.
It is NOT recommended to install software from somewhere else if you can avoid it, as this may de-stabilise your system and may also be a non-trivial exercise.

http://linux.die.net/man/8/yum

Qns:

1. Is this really Redhat Enterprise Linux
Code:
cat /etc/*release*
2. If so, it must be registered with RedHat and paid for to access the repositories
You can check the repo settings
Code:
ls /etc/yum.repos.d
To register
Code:
rhn_register
If you do not want to pay, you can use Centos; a free rebuild, which will provide SW updates, but not support ie you can't phone or email them and demand support, but they do maintain useful info and forums on their website.

Probably not the 13 year old Redhat 6.
But RedHat Enterprise Linux EL 6 :

# yum install openmotif-devel compat-libf2c-34 readline-devel

And may be # yum groupinstall "Development Tools"

.
