Where can I find Software Management Application RedHat 6
I installed RedHat6 for the first time. During the install I selected "Desktop" when offered a choice now I want to go back and install the applications provided to "Software Development Workstaion" which I was told during the install I could if I later would go to "software managment application". Where in GUI do I find the "software managment application" and is "Software Development Workstation" a choice?

RedHat 6

A million thanks

Dunno about GUI but RPM allows for group selections, see /usr/share/doc/rpm-*/GROUPS, and Yum does too, see 'yum grouplist.

Use the Add/Remove Software app which should be in your menu.

In the menu, go to System — Administration — Add/Remove software. In the left panel, select Package collections and the right one will offer things like Development tools, Desktop platform development, Server platform development, Additional development.

however the gui tools , to put it bluntly, " suck"
the terminal IS YOUR friend on RHEL

for using the repos get used to using it

su -
yum search ??????

replace ???? with the name

see the manual page

man yum
--- and the help page ---
yum --help

the reason for this is RHEL is normally a server OS with NO gui installed
