Installing Apps on Fedora


Only a few days old to Fedora.

I got my just got my wireless card up and it feels like i just lifted the world. Now I just want to download all the needed apps and the first major one that comes to mind is my browser. And the latest version of firefox is the only way to go for me. So any one give me a few directions to do that. Im ready to do it using the GUI or the terminal, what ever fits.

Re: Installing Apps on Fedora

Personally, I normally just download the rpm from www.rpmfind.net and use:
"rpm -Uvh <rpm filename>"

I think with Fedora you can also use up2date like with RedHat Enterprise Linux but I've never done it. You have to register with RedHat to use that to download the package though.

Firefox 1.0.4 is part of the default Fedora 4 installation. Try the following command to see if it actually installed:

rpm -q firefox

If for some reason it didn't, use:

yum install firefox

You'll have to be root to use yum.
