Question Installing new software/application on Red Hat Linux


Can you all please help me with,

1) How to install any new software/application on Red Hat Linux?
2) How to run any new installed application in system start up/boot process as what we do with 'chkconfig service on' with a daemon?
3) Where to entry for a new installed application i.e. is there any specific file/directory?

Hello and Welcome to LinuxQuestions,

This 'smells' a lot like homework but anyway if it's not and you're using RedHat you're paying for it, so you can easily contact them for support.

Also, these basic things can be easily found using Google or another search engine.

1) RHN
2) Write a startup script
3) FHS

Kind regards,

Eric

hello

Agree with Eric.

Additionally
you can use rpm or yum command to install packages or you can manually compile software source.

First of all: Do you mean original RHL or RHEL? If you mean the former there's not much you can do but switch to a new distro, as RHL is way past EOL.

Hi,

As far as I can tell from your post is that you wish to install applications on a CURRENT release of red hat / fedora. If that is the case ( as the second poster in this thread suggested ) just use yum. You should probably try running
Code:
yum --help
(--help in most cases will give you some info on the application your trying to use
If you want a few more details, run:
Code:
man yum
Correct me if I am wrong, but it seems your just getting started with linux or red hat. If this is the case..GREAT!!! If you have an application you would like to install that could be used as a tutorial for showing you how to use yum..post it.

Good luck.
