Yum on RHEL


Hi all,

I looked back and forth across the web to find a way to get the latest version of KDE on Redhat enterprise Linux. I found the lovely project at kde-redhat.sourceforge.net. However, they recommend using YUM, which I do not have.

How do I install Yum, in order to install the most recent KDE version?

Thanks,

--Atm

Install the yum noarch.rpm from Dag Wieers site and configure to use the kde-redhat repo;

Thanks. There were some issues installing yum, involving cElementTree and so on, but it's more or less working now.
