Yum Yum

Yum is a package installer/remover for RPM-based systems, and does all the work to calculate dependencies for packages that users want to install or remove. Yum is the default package manager for RedHat Enterprise, Fedora and CentOS Linux distributions. The OSL hosts the website, ticket tracker, code repositories and mailing lists for Yum. In addition to Yum, the OSL is also hosting development sites for yum-utils, a collection of utilities and scripts built around Yum, and createrepo, the program that creates metadata used in package repositories (supported by Yum, APT-RTM, Red Carpet, Smart, up2date and Yast).
