Package Management for Red Hat Linux

Discover how to efficiently manage the thousands of installable pieces of software that come with Red Hat Linux. In this course, learn about Linux software package choices—as well as how to manage packages using RPM and DNF, the next-generation version of Yum.

Join computer science instructor and Linux enthusiast Grant McWilliams as he shows you how to use DNF and RPM tools to query the package database, monitor your file system using the package manager for any files that have changed, use graphical package tools, and greatly expand the software available to you by adding remote, third-party repositories to Red Hat Linux. Along the way, Grant covers kernel updates and troubleshooting your software installation tools to ensure that your system continues to run well.
