Using Yum To Install Packages


Normally when I install something like (for example) php, I might compile it using ./configure for the extensions I want. Example:
Quote:
../configure --with-apxs2=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs --with-mysqli=/usr/bin/mysql_config --prefix=/usr/local/php521 --with-gd --with-zlib-dir=/usr/local --with-png-dir=/usr/lib --with-jpeg-dir=/usr/local --with-config-file-path=/usr/local/apache2/conf --with-curl --with-dom --with-pgsql=/usr/local/pgsql821 --enable-ftp --with-ming
How is this done with Yum? And where does one find the package names to use with Yum?

I'm playing with CentOS spacifically.

Yum is on the menu at System -> Add/Remove Software

Once you start Yum and give it the root password then you can click on List to get a list of every available package. Those packages already installed will have a check mark beside them. Clicking on the box beside each package name toggles between install and remove. Once you check all of the changes you want click on Apply and Yum will make the changes.

From the command line, something like

yum list available "php*"
