Learn how to install software from RPM packages in Linux. You’ll also learn how to upgrade, remove and administer the RPM packages on your system.
< What is RPM >
RPM stands for Red Hat Package Manager. However, these days RPM isn’t only Red Hat specific because many other Linux distros use RPM for managing their software. For example, both Mandriva and SuSE use RPM for software management. With RPM, you can install, upgrade and uninstall software on Linux, as well as keep track of already installed RPM packages on your system. This can be done because RPM keeps a database of all software that was installed with it.
