LXer: Getting started with the yum package manager

Published at LXer:

There are a variety of package managers available for different Linux distributions. Mandriva uses urpmi; Debian and Ubuntu use apt. Fedora and Red Hat use yum, while Gentoo uses portage. Some distributions provide support for more than one package manager as well. This week, we take a look at yum, or Yellowdog Updater Modified. Yum is written in python and has been in use with Fedora and Red Hat for many years. Yum has been proven to work, and despite some criticism as to its speed in comparison to other package mangers, it does the job, even if it is a little bit slower.
