yum RHEL4


i got another question, can i use YUM to install e.g. xinetd on a RHEL 4?
or does RHEL4 have another command like YUM?

Code:

Code:
$ yum install xinetd
-bash: yum: command not found
Thanks in advance

yum is normally a root level cmd. note also that the default pkg mgr for RHEL 4.x is up2date, although (iirc) the yum pkg mgr is avail as download in later versions of 4.x.
You will find this page useful http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/docs/DOC-2531

Incidentally, I thought xinetd has been part of the std install in RHEL for a long time; are you sure it's not already there?
